Gen:Thrive, a program of EcoRise, is a collaborative initiative that provides shared data and technology tools to accelerate sustainability and advance health, equity and climate resilience in K–12 schools.

Project Overview

The Plains Environmental Education Partnership (PEEPs) is conducting a landscape analysis of environmental education efforts in the Plains. This analysis is designed to take a comprehensive look at what environmental education is already happening on the ground, identify gaps and barriers to access that prevent successful implementation, and provide recommendations and next steps for increasing environmental literacy efforts in the Plains. KACEE is partnering with EE organizations in NE, MO, IA, WY and CO and EcoRise to complete this work. Project

Expected Outcomes

The information shared will allow us to build robust tools for public use, such as an interactive Dashboard and Program Directory, as well as a Climate, Equity, and Environmental Education Map. KACEE will share the findings and convene local leaders in late 2023, including the funding community. These tools will be utilized to identify gaps and opportunities for programming, identify highest need communities and explore strategic partnerships and alliances.

Project Next Steps

Following the completion of the Landscape Analysis of environmental education providers and programs, the PEEPs will pursue a landscape assessment of current implementation of environmental education in K-12 schools to gain an understanding of what environmental education is happening in K-12, identify gaps and barriers and provide recommendations and develop strategic partnerships to advance environmental literacy in schools.
