Environmental Education in the Community. ICE No. M0075
This new manual updates two older Peace Corps' manuals: "Teaching Conservation in Developing Nations" [ICE M0007] and "Conservation Education: A Planning Guide" [ICE No. M0023]. In addition to the time- and field-tested wisdom of the older manuals, this new manual incorporates current research and practice in the field of environmental education.

It is divided into 10 chapters: (1) What is Environmental Education; (2) Assessing and Discovering the Environmental Situation; (3) Identifying the Target Group; (4) Identifying the Message; (5) Creating an Educational Strategy; (6) Implementation; (7) Monitoring and Evaluation; (8) Environmental Education Camps; (9) Environmental Education Centers; and (10) Environmental Education Community Projects.
