Request for Proposals Summary:

The primary goal of this program is to deliver high quality coordinated environmental education across the states in EPA Region 8. All of the states in this region have been working towards assessment-driven environmental literacy initiatives that serve EPA’s educational and environmental priorities.

Environmental Literacy in Colorado is defined as an individual’s understanding of how their actions and decisions affect the environment so they can act on that understanding in a responsible and effective manner. The Colorado Environmental Education Plan, expected to be adopted in 2012, is setting the direction for environmental literacy initiatives in the state. Strategies in the plan include building awareness and sharing standards-based environmental education tools, resources, and expertise, which is the focus of this request for proposals. Find out more about the strategies in the Draft Colorado Environmental Education Plan athttp://www.cde.state.co.us/otl/environmentaleducationplan.htm. Successful proposals will address strategies outlined in the plan, demonstrate inclusive environmental education, and include a component that can be shared or disseminated among the environmental education community and through the Online Network for Environmental Education at www.coloradoee.org
