Save the Date! - July 23, 2014 (1-4 PM)
The Kentucky Environmental Education Council (KEEC) seeks input on the 2014 Environmental Education 5-Year Master Plan from all stakeholders interested in environmental education. Educators, parents, business/industry representatives, administrators or any other interested parties are invited to attend a public meeting designed to gather your ideas for how we can improve and coordinate environmental education across the Commonwealth.
Your input on environmental education is important! Environmental education teaches people how to think, not what to think, and encourages people to develop and implement solutions to environmental problems that are important to them. KEEC recently completed its 2014 Survey of Kentuckian’s knowledge, attitudes and behaviors, and found that 87% agree that our daily actions have an impact on the environment. Fully 96% agree that environmental education should be taught in schools! Learn more about the survey results, and bring your voice to the table by helping KEEC define the direction and future of environmental education in the Commonwealth.
While this meeting will kick off the public input process, regional meetings will be held across the Commonwealth during the month of August. All meeting dates and locations will be published as they are available on the KEEC website at keec.ky.gov
. If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Michelle.Shane@ky.gov
