Dear Friend of Environmental and Sustainability Learning,
Your participation or that of someone from your organization is requested at this critical gathering that will address the following two issues:
One, while great progress has been made to link K-12 and university-level formal learning and communities—and integrate academic disciplines into a dynamic professional field, we are not yet aligned as a system of partnerships with programs, networks and other resources for the greater good.
Two, E3 Washington—whose mission is to support the entire community of ESE stakeholders and providers and leverage related learning for students of all socio-economic backgrounds and regions—has been forced to scale back operations and staff. Many other ESE nonprofits are also struggling and programs in most agencies and businesses continue to be marginalized and vulnerable.
Your perspective is needed to address the contradictory reality of the increasing demand for interdisciplinary, real-world, hands on environmental and sustainability learning and the continuing lack of partnerships, political action and funding support required to bring this learning to scale.

A central question for the day will be, what is the lay of the land in ESE currently and how can we all align our limited resources to leverage greater resources in the next 1-3 years for student learning in ESE? We hope to address the question of how a statewide ESE capacity building entity (E3 Washington), coalition or other structure would most effectively advance the interests of the students, educators and community members that we collectively serve.

Thank you for your commitment to this vital field of education; one that is poised to perform as we evolve to an “organizational ecosystem” form of collaboration. In these times of disruptive climate change, ocean acidification and other issues and economic opportunities, we believe that our task is to do no less. We hope you feel the same way and will be able to join us.
Sincerely,

Tom R. Hulst
President E3 Washington
