Who is NLEE?
Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Educators (NLEE) is a growing network of people who have a passion for teaching about environmental issues. This is a call-out to teachers, interpreters, youth leaders, government and non-government educators, anyone who teaches formally or informally about the natural world around us, and our role in that world.
Join NLEE to meet and share with others who know the rewards and challenges in presenting environmental information. Together we can pool resources, share techniques and celebrate the great strides that are being made in environmental education in our province.
NLEE’s mission is to promote environmental education and serve and support groups and individuals who are or would like to be engaged in formal, non formal, and informal environmental education in Newfoundland and Labrador.
NLEE’s objectives are:
(1) To create and sustain a network that represents the diversity of regions, sectors and topics;
(2) To educate through professional development initiatives such as workshops, events, and presentations on topics such as educational techniques, content, curriculum and effectiveness;
(3) To enable resource sharing through initiatives such as a database, face to face and web-based events, poster presentations and a website; and
(4) To collaborate with local, provincial, national and international organizations to promote environmental education initiatives.
What's New at NLEE?
The future will belong to the nature-smart—those individuals, families, businesses, and political leaders who develop a deeper understanding of the transformative power of the natural world and who balance the virtual with the real. The more high-tech we become, the more nature we need.”
