Colorado Environmental Education Master Plan. Supplement to the Colorado Interim Master Plan for Environmental Education.
Center for Research and Education, Denver, CO.
The plan provides guidelines to Colorado citizens for the implementation of four environmental education programs. The major emphasis of the plan is to stimulate and strengthen environmental education throughout Colorado by increasing communication, cooperation, and coordination among individuals and organizations. The following citizen-based action plans, together with their respective goals, have been proposed: 1) Colorado Environmental Education Council (CEEC) (to coordinate on a statewide basis all environmental education activities). 2) Environmental Education Resource Information Clearinghouse (to establish communications with groups and individuals, and to provide resource information, coordination, and technical assistance in environmental education planning); 3) Environmental Education Teacher Preparation Plan (to conduct in-service teacher training on environmental concepts); and 4) Media Involvement plan (to achieve wider utilization of TV, radio, and newspapers as a means for increasing the public's environmental awareness, concern, and commitment). Program needs, objectives, and design, and recommendations for implementation are provided for each plan. The proposed Constitution and by-Laws of the CEEC are also included in this document.
