The GEEP is committed to developing leaders who have the 21st century skills required to address the complex sustainability challenges we face. We work to strengthen the leadership pipeline to enable environmental education change makers to develop and succeed. To accomplish this, we provide awards, professional development opportunities, and serve as a convener to bring the brightest environmental education minds together.
EE 30 Under 30
Since 2016, EE 30 Under 30 has recognized 30 individuals every year from around the world who are making a difference through environmental education. The program works to shine a spotlight on the inspiring next generation of leaders, and support them with a network, resources, and other professional development opportunities to advance their careers. The alumni span a wide range of countries, sectors, and environmental issues. For example, the Class of 2018 works across five continents and includes champions of energy, water, climate resilience, the Arctic, environmental health issues, and much more. This program is made possible by the GEEP, North American Association for Environmental Education, US Forest Service, and Wells Fargo.
The Class of 2019 will be announced in August 2019. Learn more about the program here.
