Ohio EE 2000: A Strategic Plan for Environmental Education in Ohio.
Ohio State Environmental Protection Agency, Columbus.; Environmental Education Council of Ohio, Newark.; Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus.; Ohio State Dept. of Natural Resources, Columbus.
In 1996, the Environmental Education Council of Ohio (EECO) took the lead in developing a statewide plan to build Ohio's capacity--or Ohio's ability to provide leadership and resources--for environmental education. The goal for the project was to collaboratively develop and implement a statewide strategy for building Ohio's ability to promote reform-based environmental education that is interdisciplinary, community-based, and learner-centered. This document presents the plan to bring these goals to fruition. Topics include: (1) Coordinated Leadership, featuring a statewide environmental education steering committee, an environmental education center, and a staff that will coordinate communication, networking, and program development among groups to provide planning and outreach for educators; (2) Guidelines for Best Practices, providing an outline of the best practices in Ohio's environmental education programs based on proven methods and research findings; (3) Outreach, discussing promotion of environmental education in Ohio and centralized access to environmental information and education resources; (4) Training and Professional Development, providing programs to assist people in becoming effective environmental educators; (5) Diversity, developing programs, services, and facilities that will be accessible and affordable to diverse audiences in Ohio; (6) Support, coordinating a unified, active constituency that will build bipartisan political support for environmental education; and (7) Funding, maintaining and developing sustainable funding sources. Contains 13 references. (CCM)
