DETAILS
Join community planners from the Onondaga Environmental Institute and learn about outreach tools and strategies to raise awareness and connect communities to their watershed. Some of these strategies and tools include:
  • Working with a wide array of partners including cultural and historical organizations, community centers, indigenous leaders and academia
  • Working with community based professional artists to create community value maps
  • Piloting a place-based curriculum with a local teacher
  • Providing opportunities for inter-generational learning
  • Creating artistic products such as posters and calendars that engender community pride and magnify the impact.
What connects people to a place? How do we recognize what people value about a place and what can we do to ensure that peoples’ values are protected as part of planning processes. For those of us working on environmental issues how to do we help communities foster and strengthen environmental connections to the place called home?

In 2014, Onondaga Environmental Institute received an EPA environmental education grant award for the “Reviving Place Project”. As part of the project we used a number of outreach tools and strategies to raise awareness about connections to place in the Onondaga Lake Watershed as well as support community participation in evaluation of environmental project proposals. This webinar will focus on the tools and strategies employed and lessons learned with an emphasis on how these tools can be applied in communities across the country.

The essential elements of this place-based education project are transferable to both formal and informal educational contexts in other communities.
