The Power of Connection
NAAEE’s annual Research Symposium brings together new and experienced researchers from around the globe to explore the current state and future directions of environmental education research and advance the use of practices proven to be effective. The symposium fosters discussion and collaboration among members of the EE research field, including researchers, policymakers, and practitioners at all stages of their careers. Participants can meet with colleagues and mentors to discuss publishing and career advice and issues and concerns in the world of research. We will also highlight graduate student research in this year’s program.
Reflecting the general theme—the power of connection— sessions promoted dialogue and encourage praxis as we confront myriad challenges, ranging from climate change to environmental, economic, and racial injustices. Panels, roundtable discussions, and posters reflect two tracks: Method and Theory and Pedagogy and Programming.
