NYOSEA’s Environmental Literacy Committee is compiling examples of environmental projects that exemplify environmental literacy in action in New York State. If you are a teacher or educator working with a school, please tell us how you are helping to create environmentally-literate students in your classroom. NYSOEA’s working definition of environmental literacy might help you to pick an appropriate project to submit:
An environmentally literate citizen has a connection to the outdoor environment and a sense of place, understands the interconnectedness of all Earth systems, and is engaged and empowered to address environmental issues and their impact.
