Teachers at Conference

Conferences & Other Events

EEI staff and Teacher Ambassadors regularly present at statewide and regional conferences to share information about California’s Environmental Principles and Concepts (EP&Cs) and discuss opportunities to strengthen environmental literacy in K-12 instruction. The scope of these events typically extends beyond the EEI Curriculum and, therefore, attendance usually does not qualify you to receive free EEI unit materials.

If you are interested in attending a training that focuses exclusively on the EEI Curriculum and/or want to attend training to qualify to order free EEI unit materials, please attend an in-person training or webinar instead.
