We conducted an evaluability assessment of the U.S. Forest Service's "More Kids in the Woods" internal grant initiative based on a review of 26 funded proposals, the creation of logic models, and a survey of project leaders. Evaluations of the initiative are warranted because it has clear outcome objectives, is implemented as intended, and results…

Strife, Susan – Journal of Environmental Education, 2010
Recently the environmental movement has seen much success and progress under a newly-framed green paradigm.

Barry, Clayton – Journal of Environmental Education, 2010
In the Western world, a paradigm exists that sees environment treated as one extreme of an adversarial binary, balanced in opposition to society. This paradigm, which I call the "environment/society disconnect," infiltrates the secondary school system, leading to serious deficiencies in how students understand the social dimensions of…

Dunlap, Riley E.; Van Liere, Kent D. – Journal of Environmental Education, 2008
The "New Environmental Paradigm" or NEP appears to have gained considerable popularity in academic and intellectual circles, as well as among many college students; however, very little is known concerning the degree to which the general public has come to accept the ideas embodied in it. Thus, although there have been dozens of studies…

Dimopoulos, Dimitrios; Paraskevopoulos, Stefanos; Pantis, John D. – Journal of Environmental Education, 2008
The ability of the National Marine Park of Zakynthos (NMPZ) in Greece to protect an important sea turtle rookery will ultimately depend on the level of local support and involvement that it receives. Therefore, it is essential for environmental educators to generate among local inhabitants, starting at early ages, positive attitudes concerning the…
