Evaluating Youth Environmental Awareness and Stewardship Programs: the Why and the How

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Youth environmental programs are widespread but rarely evaluated systematically. How do we know how well they worked? What is their ability to change knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors? Participants will explore these questions using participatory tools, and learn how findings can be used to both improve implementation and advocate for funding. We will use examples from a pilot program in Markham, IL.
