Colorado and Environmental Literacy

This seems really cool, and much needed. Colorado has an environmental literacy plan, a coordinated strategy between PreK-12 teachers, environmental education providers, and leaders that aims to:

  • Restore and increase field experiences as part of the school curriculum
  • Improve state-wide access to existing environmental education programs and materials
  • Make connections with Colorado Academic Standards and 21st Century Skills to support classroom instruction
  • Create opportunities for enhanced and ongoing professional development of educators
