Advocating for environmental education

I was excited to get my hands on the July issue of Eingana – the journal of Environment Education Victoria – it was my first issue as copyeditor, and the journal featured a new design to go with the organisation’s new name.

This issue brings together education and advocacy, summed up nicely by EEV Vice President James Tonson, who said that environmental educators ‘both advocate for (environmental) education and educate for advocacy’. And the advocacy ranges from an energy project that won Melbourne Girls’ College a US$100,000 Zayed Future Energy Prize to grassroot environmentalists creating conversations about sustainability in their rural community (with one eye on Paris).
