OAK is in its third year participating in an exciting partnership coordinated by the Meridian Institute with partners at the North American Association of Environmental Educators (NAAEE), Children & Nature Network (C&NN) and the National Caucus of Environmental Legislators (NCEL). The partnership recently released the Youth Outdoor Policy Playbook, a tool to help legislators and community leaders advance state policies that support getting kids outdoors. Check out the playbook here.
Youth Outdoor Policy Playbook
The Youth Outdoor Policy Playbook highlights successful bipartisan policy initiatives and provides resources to support new statewide efforts to build healthy communities by increasing kids’ regular, positive experiences outside through environmental education and youth engagement in the outdoors.
The Youth Outdoor Policy Playbook:
- Demonstrates what’s working and what’s possible by highlighting existing and promising policy solutions for increasing youth engagement in the outdoors.
- Shares the knowledge and experience of environmental education and outdoor engagement champions to inspire new, innovative ideas.
- Connects cross sector leaders working on statewide policy initiatives.
Help OAK and its partners improve the Youth Outdoor Policy Playbook! Check out the Playbook and send feedback and idea to OAK’s Senior Campaign Representative, Jayni Rasmussen, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
