Equity Training for Educators

EENC wants to make #EEforAll in North Carolina. You can help EENC offer training for educators so they can provide more equitable and inclusive environmental education experiences for all of our state's students. While we've been excited to introduce an asynchronous online course on this topic, we know there's no substitute for deep learning guided by an expert facilitator.

The 2021 auction proceeds will be earmarked for future justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion trainings. The true cost of these types of workshops, including expert facilitators, ranges from $3000-$6000 each. You can help make equity-focused training as accessible as possible for the educators in our community by bidding now and bidding often.

All auction items were donated, so all funds raised will strengthen this cause! Thank you for caring so deeply for our state's environmental educators!

About Environmental Educators of North Carolina

Did you grow up catching fireflies, playing in the creek, or building a fort in your yard? Most children in today’s world won’t, which means that when they grow up, they may not have a vested interest in protecting our natural resources and natural spaces. Environmental educators across the state are working to change that, and we need your help. Environmental education is a learning process that increases knowledge, develops skills, and fosters commitment to empower learners to make to make informed decisions and take responsible action.

The Environmental Educators of North Carolina (EENC) grew from the desire of environmental educators across North Carolina to meet and share their experiences, aspirations, and tools. Since its inception in 1990, EENC has grown into something much greater. Our organization represents a network of outstanding environmental educators, individuals, and organizations who work together to accomplish our core mission: to build connections, provide professional development, and promote excellence in environmental education. EENC’s vision is to inspire those we work with to create an environmentally literate citizenry.

Every year, we hold an annual auction in conjunction with our conference to raise critical funds to support our community.
