In October 2017, and in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the Tbilisi Declaration, the Global Environmental Education Partnership (GEEP) launched a Call to Action to gather feedback on priorities for the field of environmental education (EE) over the next decade and beyond. To spark discussion, the GEEP identified ten potential actions
environmental educators, collectively, could take to advance our shared goals. These actions were developed by a working group of environmental education leaders from around the world, and mindful of the incredible body of work that has come before, starting with the Tbilisi Declaration of 1977, the Millennium Development Goals, the Decade for Education for Sustainability, the international adoption of a set of ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and others.
From October, 2017 through April, 2018, this draft Call to Action was circulated for feedback through this website. The global EE community was asked to prioritize these actions, reflect on how these high priority actions could be carried out in practice, and suggest any additional ideas for the future.
