Stapp, William B., Ed.
This report is an account of the 1978 National Leadership Conference on Environmental Education held in Washington, D.C. in March. The major purposes of the conference were to review recommendations of past environmental education conferences, assess the present situation in environmental education in the United States, and develop a clear set of recommendations to further environmental education in the United States. Furthermore, every recommendation approved at this meeting includes a coordinated implementation plan with reasonable timelines, assigned responsibilities, and established monitoring procedures. This Conference Report is organized in chronological order and includes plenary meeting presentations, recommendations from the working groups, and samples of the State environmental education legislation. Topics under consideration by the working groups include teacher inservice education, accessibility and dissemination of materials, state level networking and legislation, and the federal role in national environmental education strategy. A list of conference participants is included. (Author/MA)
