SUMMIT PROGRAM GUIDE 

 

Together we will inform, inspire and foster innovative collaborations among organizations and leaders from many different sectors and endeavors. Do you work for environmental literacy? Science education? Land conservation? Community food security? Outdoor recreation? Environmental justice? Resilient communities? Do you seek to enhance the relationships among people, nature and communities? Our work may not look the same, but you know we are all inherently interconnected. Your participation will help make us better together.

Join the Maine Environmental Education Association and the New England Environmental Education Alliance at Pineland Farms, in New Gloucester. Twenty miles north of Portland, Pineland Farms is a 5,000-acre working farm, business and learning campus, and an inspiring venue for outdoor education and recreation.

  • Celebrate the sum of our parts
  • Foster innovative partnerships
  • Create robust pathways to environmental literacy.


Thank you to our generous sponsors and funders. Their support has made the Summit possible. 



ABOUT MEEA

The Maine Environmental Education Association (MEEA) facilitates and promotes environmental education in Maine through the sharing of ideas, resources, information, and cooperative programs among educators, organizations, and concerned individuals. MEEA is built on the strengths and contributions of our members.

Created in 1982, MEEA helps organizations, schools, groups, educational programs, and individuals promote and expand environmental education in Maine. In addition, MEEA acts as a clearing house, keeping groups and individuals informed of issues and events in the field of environmental education. We believe conserving Maine's rich cultural and natural heritage requires an environmentally aware citizenship.
MEEA is an affiliate of the New England Environmental Education Alliance and the North American Association of Environmental Education.
