Alaska Forum on the Environment, 2014! Important October deadlines!
Alaska Forum on the Environment, 2014
The 16th annual Alaska Forum on the Environment will be held February 3-7, 2014. Registration services are now available and registering with a discounted rate will make the best use of your training dollars. The agenda is in development but promises to provide important environmental information affecting Alaska. Registration is available online at http://www.akforum.org
Environmental Education Funding Opportunity for Youth Projects
The Alaska Forum, with the support of EPA, is offering funding opportunities of up to $5,000 through the Community Environmental Education Stewardship through Youth Involvement Project. This program will support focused proposals from small communities (population less than 50,000 in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, or Washington) where youth seek involvement in environmental stewardship efforts. Proposals will be selected where youth are matched with a local environmental professional or teacher who will mentor youth as they address a specific concern in the community and work to solve it. Non-profit 501c3 organizations, middle schools and high schools or districts must serve as the fiscal agent of the grant award. Tribes can be instrumental in encouraging project submissions for their communities and serving as the environmental mentors required for these projects.
Call for Presentations
The Alaska Forum on the Environment is pleased to provide an opportunity for individuals, organizations, agencies, and businesses to propose a technical breakout presentation for the February 3-7th, 2014 event. The Alaska Forum seeks presentations on topics that address technical, scientific or general information on environmental issues. Approved presentations are typically educational in content and information-based. Where topics represent a controversial issue, sessions must include a range of information that shares a full understanding of the diversity of perspectives about an issue. Topics that promote a product, service or single position on an issue are not generally considered.
