Guidelines for Excellence

About National Project for Excellence in EE

Are you looking for resources that will help you design and implement effective environmental education programs?

The National Project for Excellence in Environmental Education, initiated by NAAEE in 1993, has developed a series of Guidelines that set the standards for high-quality environmental education. Each of these publications was developed by a diverse team of professionals, and each has gone through a substantive review by thousands of professionals prior to its publication.

Through the National Project for Excellence in Environmental Education, NAAEE is taking the lead in establishing guidelines for the development of balanced, scientifically accurate, and comprehensive environmental education programs. Quality environmental education programs help develop an environmentally literate citizenry that can compete in our global economy; has the skills, knowledge, and inclinations to make well-informed choices; and exercises the rights and responsibilities of members of a community.

The latest versions of printed materials in the Guidelines for Excellence series are posted on this Web site, and you can download them for free. However, if you want to purchase a bound copy, go to the NAAEE Publications order page. The purchase price covers our printing and mailing costs.
