Experts from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) will join The Nature Generation, a nonprofit aiming to inspire the next generation of environmental stewards, in a comprehensive discussion on our nation’s environmental literacy gap. We will explore what the current gap is; why it is relevant to our future including environmental implications as well as security, economic, and social significance; disparities within the gap itself; and effective ways to close it.

This conversation will include an extensive Q&A session allowing the audience to engage with the experts. The webinar will cover a wide range of topics within environmental literacy and education and will be of interest to students and educators, policy makers and public officials, environmental and conservation organizations, and professionals working in the environment or energy sectors.

The Nature Generation is the founder of the Green Earth Book Award, where authors who write meaningful literature around environmental priorities are celebrated; the 2017 honored authors will be announced during the conclusion of the webinar as a resource to attendees and to honor the authors commitment to environmental education. We welcome office groups and classroom registrations, and expect this to be a popular topic so register early!
