Environmental Education (EE) Grants (12/10/2013)
This grant program funds environmental education (EE) projects. Environmental information and outreach may be important elements of EE projects, but these activities by themselves are not environmental education. By itself, environmental information only addresses awareness and knowledge, usually about a particular environmental issue. Outreach involves information dissemination and requests or suggestions for action on a particular issue (often without the critical thinking, problem solving and decision making steps in between). EE covers the range of steps and activities from awareness to action with an ultimate goal of environmental stewardship.
How to make pollution-prevention systems work for your company (12/10/2013)
During P2 Week 2013, the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable promoted a Pollution Prevention (P2) Pioneer Webinar targeting state technical assistance programs (TAPs) and industry EHS staff. The webinar featured P2 pioneers Cindy McComas, Gary Hunt and Cam Metcalf, who shared their years of experience and thoughts on the evolution of P2. They discussed the evolution perspectives from an end-of-pipe reactive mode to a production process approach and finally, to a proactive systems model. P2 has grown over the years, and it's now in the "environmental sustainability" phase. Good plans are in place, but upper management commitment is essential for the approaches to succeed.
