Earth Force Educator Professional Development

Registration is now open for Summer 2021 Earth Force Educator workshops! Learn how to help your students carry out environmental and civic action projects. The Earth Force Process is a research-based model that guides young people through identifying environmental issues in their community, finding an effective solution to the issue, and working with people in power to carry out the solution. If you want to do action projects with your students or if you already do projects but want to make those project more robust, Earth Force is here to help!
