About 3E

Mission Statement

To help educators everywhere enhance environmental education.

3E Overview

Who?

3E was developed by Jennifer Whipp (see the About Me page for more information) and targets educators in both traditional classrooms, and environmental education settings. 

What?

This resource contains information to help educators improve environmental education using tools and practices that are readily available to them.

When?

Now! Environmental education has never been more important than it is right now. Educating the next generation of environmental protectors has to start with this generation of teachers. 

Where?

Everywhere! Although, this resource specifically targets Ontario's curriculum, the principles and practices presented here can be applied anywhere.

Why?

The importance of environmental education cannot be understated, yet research shows that teachers need more resources to help them effectively implement environmental education in their practice, and so, here we are!

How?

3E is divided into numerous sections to help educators best meet their needs. See the descriptions below for more details.
