Workshops for Nonformal Educators

Incorporate Population Education activities into your work at environmental education centers, zoos, aquaria, and science museums. Population Education offers workshops for staff development, as well as for teacher groups.

Understanding human population pressures is integral to human ecology. Whether your educational programs focus on topics of sustainability or areas of global citizenship, Population Education can create an activity agenda that complements and enhances your center’s work. Requested workshops can be as short as a lunch-hour introduction to the PopEd program or as long as a full-day, in-depth teacher workshop.

Population Education teaching resources are currently in use at a number of nonformal sites including the American Museum of Natural History (NY), Woodland Park Zoo (WA) and the Columbus Zoo (OH). Look for us at state and regional environmental and outdoor education conferences. Here is a selection of recent sites where we have facilitated training workshops for educators:
