The theme for the EENC 2022 conference is rEEdefine: redefining how we reflect, connect and identify in the field of EE.
Expanding EE: EENC strives to make our organization and environmental education more accessible and welcoming to all communities. There are many individuals, organizations and programs doing EE, even if that term isn’t explicitly used to describe their work. Presentations in this strand might address:
EE as a Bridge: EE is an interdisciplinary field with roots in many traditions and can help cultivate connections across these seemingly different fields. Session ideas for this topic may include:
Back to the Youth: From providing input on programmatic goals to taking control of their own learning, youth are vital stakeholders in environmental education. Sessions in this strand might address:
Our Keynote speaker will be NC State’s very own Dr. Rasul Mowatt, Department Head of Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management. Dr. Mowatt’s research centers on the production and restructuring of urban space, primarily within cities, and how that impacts what we understand to be the function of race, gender and class in a society. Most recently his teaching and research culminated in his book titled "The Geographies of Threat and the Production of Violence: The State and the City Between Us,” published by Routledge press in 2021. In his free time, Dr. Mowatt is a DJ.
Join us as we work together to redefine and expand ideas of EE!
