The State Education and Environment Roundtable provides professional development programs to meet the needs of schools and districts. Their programs are highly interactive, and are designed to help teachers achieve standards-based learning goals through environment-based education.
State Education and Environment Roundtable specialists train interdisciplinary teams of teachers, administrators, and community partners where participants learn how to teach academic content standards through community-based investigations and environmental service-learning projects.
Founded in 1995 with grants from The Pew Charitable Trusts, the State Environment and Education Roundtable has worked with 16 state departments of education to develop Environment-Based Education as a standards-based instructional strategy.
Over the past two decades, the State Education and Environment Roundtable has provided professional development and technical support to teachers from over 700 schools across the United States to implement environment-based education.
