GLRPPR Sector Resource: Environmental Education Toolkit for Community Groups

Environmental Education Toolkit for Community Groups

This toolkit provides information, resources and activities that groups of any size, age or composition can use to take meaningful actions that are good for the environment. Whether you're looking for ideas and resources to organize a group of volunteers, neighbors or friends for a one-time event, leading a class or small group meeting, or working with a team of people to educate and engage others in your organization, school, or neighborhood, this toolkit contains useful information for you. The foundation of this publication is a successful, community-based environmental education program in the Twin Cities called Community POWER, which is supported by the Solid Waste Management Coordinating Board. Earlier versions of the toolkit were pilot-tested with more than 20 community groups in Hennepin County.
