Environmental Educator Networks

Environmental educators' networks provide forums for educators, state and local government, community groups and other organisations, to share resources, ideas and information.

Local networks are often coordinated by local government or Environmental Education Centres. Membership is generally open with schools rotating responsibility for hosting an after school meeting once a term. Guest speakers are invited to attend to present on a particular issue or theme. Members communicate through council websites, newsletters, emails and other social networking forums.
