Quality Improve program impact by increasing use of evidence-based practices Relevance Increase program relevance and diversity of constituents served Ownership Increase participation of stakeholders & funders in design and delivery of EE system Collaboration Increase scale and quality of collaborative program delivery Ultimate Impact: Increased collective inspiration, skills, motivation, and action for a healthy environment Platform Stakeholder Engagement Resources for Successful Programs Collaborative Tools & Supports Collaborative Impact: Increased standing and improved effectiveness of the EE Field Community Partnership
Increased quality and quantity of local and thematically- based collaboration focused on optimizing the design and delivery of EE programs Collaboration Consider focusing efforts to support collaboration in areas or communities where there is great need for EE. Local stakeholder groups (e.g. EE providers, community colleges, school teachers, farmers markets, etc.) Increased # of local and thematic EE collaboratives (e.g. county collaborative & ocean acidification collaborative) Create a pathway model as an organizing principle that is horizontal (age) and vertical (content areas) Map the local field of actors/stakeholders ID and fund a backbone org. with a 5-year commitment Create operating guidelines and web-based organizing Conduct outreach and recruitment (consider $ incentives) Pilot 2 collaboratives: one local, and one thematic Desired OutcomesStrategiesTarget PopulationLong-Term Impact Principle
Desired OutcomesStrategiesTarget PopulationLong-Term Impact Stakeholders will contribute actively to its support, design, delivery, and evolution Ownership Values School system administrators Stakeholders believe in the value of EE and understand how they can contribute Design and execute communications; start with big levers (systemic) and phase into individual Actively engage stakeholders in support, design, delivery of EE; develop specific strategies for each stakeholder group Utilize existing signature programs/events to demonstrate exchange and collective impact Humility, transparency, inclusivity Spotlight Teacher, ranger, teacher Parents Community leaders Youth Funders Teachers
Desired OutcomesStrategiesTarget PopulationLong-Term Impact Quality Principles School Administrators Quality programs/resources that promote evidence- based reasoning, align with NGSS standards Researchers, evaluators and program designers & implementers collaborate on action research Share model programs in an iterative fashion to ensure relevance Document/share how-to guidance and examples with evidence of success (including sources of evidence) Promote the adoption of NAAEE guidelines for excellence Promote participant-feedback/ iterative research design methods for programs (e.g. front-end, formative, summative) Strive for appropriate investment in measuring impact on participants and environment (e.g. 10% of program costs) Where possible, action research should explicitly address best practice replication. EE programs should be student-centered, place-based, and/or outside to the extent possible. EE Providers Researchers & Evaluators Teachers Every person in 12 county Bay Area is doing something to protect the environment Quality programs that inspire care for the environment Every person in 12 county Bay Area considers the environment when making personal choices Every student in grade K-12 spends min. one hr/week in EE activities Connect teachers and informal educators with curriculum and PD that is placed and supported outdoors Incorporate place based learning into model regional programs Teacher PD Providers Program Participants Provide support for educators and program designers to align programs with NGSS Increase funding for OST EE programs and training for OST program providers
Desired OutcomesStrategies Target Population Long-Term Impact Increased program relevance Relevance Principles Should be inclusive of/complementary to formal education Consider partnerships as a vehicle for capacity building Environments and People are valued Individuals and Communities Providers EE provided in diverse settings Provide integrated experiences across population groups Support in hiring and training divers workforce in EE Support and/or PD in program design (incl. new providers) Create clearinghouse of culturally relevant best practices/resources Messaging and outreach to underserved communities Increased capacity of providers to serve diverse populations Create pathway for diverse communities, incl. conduit to vocation and/or other action Participants are committed to inspire, lead, and model positive environmental behavior. Sense of place, interconnectedness to environment Increased diversity of EE staff to reflect those served Develop virtual/mobile programs, satellite locations Provide access, support, and funding to increase participation of underserved communities Community Co- Design Link providers and communities in the formation of EE experiences. Participants actively raise the field of EE through their experiences
