Problem: There is a lack of understanding, and misconceptions exist about the field of environmental education. Support is relatively low for the many high-quality programs and organizations that do exist. The field is not recognized fully by environmental or education professions, and is overlooked in terms of funding and support. There is a need to maintain a high level of integrity and credibility within the field to continue to build support and break misconceptions about the field. Five Year Direction: SEEF will enhance its leadership role by increasing and formalizing the organization’s services that raise the skill level of individual environmental education practitioners. SEEF will emphasize the design of quality environmental education resources.
