Spring 2023 online course

Environmental Education and Community Engagement

Our Lab is excited to offer again this popular 4-week online course from April 3–30, 2023 (4 weeks).

Participants will explore and create new ideas for community engagement in formal and nonformal environmental education.


We expect hundreds of environmental educators and community leaders to join this global course.

Civic Ecology Lab's latest book explores how we can harness our social networks to fight the climate crisis. Against notions of the lone environmental crusader, Marianne Krasny shows us the power of "network climate action"—the idea that our own ordinary acts can influence and inspire those close to us. Through this spread of climate-conscious practices and advocacy, our individual actions become collective ones that can eventually effect widespread change.


Whether by inviting family, friends, or colleagues to a plant-rich meal or by becoming activists at climate nonprofits, we can forge the social norms and shared identities that lead to change. With easy-to-follow dos and don'ts, In This Together shows us a practical and hopeful way forward into our shared future.

Features cartoons by former New Yorker cartoonist Emily Hopkins.

Please join two powerful environmental champions for a 1-hour action party. You’ll learn about America's dirty secret -- the wastewater issue and how the climate crisis is exacerbating it, often in low-income communities and communities of color. Then fire up the Climate Action Now app and actually DO something about the problem!
