Are You Speaking to Groups Throughout the Year to Promote Improved Environmental Education?

June 26th, 2013 No comments

green-educationAre You Continuing to Educate Consumers About Environmental Causes?

Austin, Texas: Since education is the key to gaining supporters for environmental causes, when was the last time you spoke in public about a green issue: recycling, anti-litter, composting, energy efficiency, solar power, carbon footprint, etc?

When was the last time you blogged about ideas to help improve the environment?

Have you been active or complacent in promoting environmental education?

The green movement needs acolytes and proselytizers.

We have plenty of critics and plenty of companies using greenwashing to subterfuge the issue.

We need increased environmental education.

We need greater transparency.

Don’t speak about your new green product or service.

Speak on the topic of the environment and environmental stewardship.

Explain the basics.

Implore action.

Discuss green issues.

Promote greater education.

Grow the base.

Work with other green organizations to create synergy in these educational endeavors.

Possibly create symposiums, online speeches, forums or debates.

Bring in people from all sides of the green spectrum – as environmental education is about presenting the facts – and then letting people decide for themselves.

Earth Day cannot be the only day of the year that you promote a greener planet.

Get more involved today.

Changing Green Behavior: One Person at a Time

November 30th, 2011 No comments

the importance of education is critical for the green movememntAustin, Texas: Noted author Seth Godin wrote a blog post today talking about how a movement actually happens one person at a time.

He says, “Products and services succeed one person at a time, as the word slowly spreads. Customers defect one person at a time, as hearts are broken and people are disappointed. Doors open, sure, but not all at once. One at a time.”

Too many people view the green movement as a whole, as an entity, without thinking about how people come to join the movement — one at a time. Or how they leave a movement.

The key to a greener planet is education and outreach.

As young children are taught more about the hazards of climate change and understand how decisions they make can impact their carbon footprint, they will tell others. And lead by example.

Other students will catch on, as will some of their parents and grandparents.

After time, the movement snowballs – as it gains momentum.

Resistance will fade over time, just as other movements, such as Civil Rights, Women’s Suffrage, etc. have ceased to be the major wedge issues in this country.

But always remember, to promote the Green Movement, one needs to practice outreach and education.

One person at a time.

As Seth Godin says, “One at a time is a little anticlimactic … but one at a time is how we win and how we lose.”

Are you continually practicing green outreach?
