The National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF) provides knowledge to trusted professionals who, with their credibility, amplify messages to national audiences to solve everyday environmental problems. Together, we generate lasting positive change.
The National Environmental Education Act of 1990 established the National Environmental Education Foundation as a complementary organization to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), extending its ability to foster environmental knowledge in all segments of the American public as well as leveraging private funds that EPA, as a federal agency, could not access.
Our strategy is to reach the public through a powerful network of trusted professionals who can help Americans make everyday, informed choices for a healthy life and healthy environment.
Working with a network of health professionals, weathercasters, land managers and teachers our programs reach hundreds of thousands of households and translate into direct actions, saving millions of dollars as well as reducing energy use and costs, protecting nature and improving the health of the public.
