Achieving a bright future for people and the planet requires addressing a host of current environmental challenges, while developing strategies and skills to address new ones that can emerge quickly and unpredictably. As grantmakers search for the most effective ways to meet these challenges, many are looking to environmental education as a natural complement to policy and science. Recognizing that environmental education can work in tandem with these other strategies, grantmakers see opportunities to involve individuals and communities through building knowledge, skills, and behavior at local, regional, and even larger scales.
