The Environmental Resilience Institute’s “Educating for Environmental Change” program won the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) Governor’s Award for Environmental Education/Outreach. It’s a program in which a number of EAS faculty and students have played a leading role, including Cody Kirkpatrick, Paul Staten, Brian Yanites, Devon Colcord, and Michael Hamburger.
The award will be presented at an event next week and the Educating for Environmental Change (EfEC) team will be presenting at the IDEM annual (virtual) conference in mid-September.
The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) Governor’s Awards for Environmental Excellence are Indiana’s most prestigious environmental recognition awards. They are reserved for the most innovative, sustainable, and exemplary programs or projects that positively impact Indiana’s environment and demonstrate measurable environmental, economic, and social benefits. The selection process is highly competitive, and only one award per category will be presented during a ceremony in September annually.
