The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is soliciting proposals for
grants for projects which design, demonstrate, or disseminate
environmental education practices, methods, or techniques.
Environmental education, as defined in the EPA, increases public
awareness and knowledge about environmental issues and provides the
skills to make informed decisions and take responsible actions. It is
based on objective and scientifically sound information. It does not
advocate a particular viewpoint or course of action. It teaches
individuals how to weigh various sides of an issue through critical
thinking and it enhances their own problem-solving and decision making
skills. All proposals must satisfy the definition of "environmental
education" specified above and also address one of the following
educational priorities: Capacity building, education reform, community
issues, health, teaching skills, and career development. Grant amounts
vary. Applications are due November 15, 2004. For more information
