Start the week by considering social movements in #enviroed

If you’ve wondered how “civic and political organizations can make the participation of ordinary people Possible, Probable, and Powerful” [P3] you might want to check out this webinar from NAAEE. It features Hahrie Han and the work of the P3 lab at UCSB, on civic and political engagement, collective action, social change, and democratic revitalization, particularly as it pertains to environmental politics and social policy issues.

Start the week by considering the collective impact of environmental education initiatives

In this new article published in the Stanford Social Innovation Review, the journal’s Associate Editor, Nicole Ardoin and colleagues explore “what might be possible if organisations worked together to increase the impact of environmental education”.

The article sketches the roles and challenges of ensuring a commitment to equity, a common agenda, shared measurement systems, mutually reinforcing activities, continuous communication, and a backbone support organization.

Guest editors: Mark Rickinson, Monash University & Marcia McKenzie, University of Saskatchewan

The purpose of this Special Issue is to draw and build upon:

• the increasing body of work on the research-policy relationship in fields beyond ESE;

• the need to bring these two developments into conversation and debate, against the backdrop of developments in monitoring and evaluation aims in international ESE policy.
