Date and Time
Thursday, June 27, 2019, from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM
The Summit goals include reaffirming commitments to the 2014 Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement’s Environmental Literacy Goal. Most importantly, the Summit will highlight the challenges and explore possible solutions to the equitable distribution of environmental education resources and opportunities. The Summit will explore systemic environmental education and how it can drive diversity, equity and inclusion. Summit participants will share successful models and have the opportunity to share both challenges and successes encountered when implementing these models on a large scale. Formal and informal discussions will identify strategies that may work within a jurisdiction to provide equitable environmental instruction for all students. All participants will be engaged in identifying specific next step actions by jurisdiction to implement as follow-up to the Summit.
