General Resources

The Center for Diversity and the Environment has a tremendous resource page, spanning topics such as Environmental Voting, Environmental Justice, Tribes and the Environment, Diversity and the Environmental Movement, and Related Organization. The Aldo Leopold Foundation also has a Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice Resource List.

NatureBridge also has educator resources and offers a training program that seeks to increase representation in outdoor education and programming.

In addition, EENC has launched a justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion page and in August 2019, a “new “Equity and Inclusion in Environmental Education” online resource collection” that includes “articles, research, videos, podcasts, books, people, and organizations from across the internet into five categories:

  • Helping You Learn More: Deeper Dives, Strategies, and Best Practices
  • Teaching With Equity and Inclusion
  • Inspirational People and Stories: Shining a Spotlight on Amazing Work by Phenomenal People
