How can grantmakers continue to support and cultivate this next generation of environmental leaders? This convening will bring together multiple environmental education and leadership development programs to share stories of success and dig deeper to understand underlying themes making these programs work. We’ll also address opportunities to scale and network these initiatives in order to deepen their impact. Given the complexity and diversity of the environmental movement, this session will weave together multiple issues including environmental justice, land conservation, park access, air and water quality, and more. You’ll have the opportunity to hear short presentations from the speakers, engage in a group dialog, and split up into smaller groups for a more focused conversation. After the formal program, we invite you to continue informal conversations over lunch, which will be served.
