Learn about K-12 environmental education programs from across the country and workshop your own programming in a dedicated, collaborative environment. Since 2020, the Learning Landscapes K-12 Leadership Summit cohort has refined the Perpetuity Principle and incorporated them into land and community-based environmental education programs. These principles introduce a logical tie-in to ongoing advances regarding community-centered conservation and the concept of Perpetuity already present in land acquisition and stewardship. Land trusts from across the country have convened the last three years in order to actualize effective use of best practices, including DEIJ, program mapping, evaluation (both collective and individual), place-based learning and youth-led conversations around climate. This session will feature a concentrated version of the annual Summit, giving space for current land trust staff involved in or interested in youth environmental education to consult with similar programs after an explanation of the foundational logic and history of K-12 environmental education programming.
