Minnesota and China, a Global Partnership for Environmental Education

Wolf Ridge was selected by education leaders in China as their chosen model of environmental education to follow.  Sent by the US National Committee on China Relations, Peter traveled to China in 2020 where he visited with education leaders and consulted on development of their programs and to help construct partnerships between the two countries.  He will share examples of China's current approaches to environmental education, the unique challenges they face, and the identified methods at Wolf Ridge that were seen as most valuable and why.  At the same time, what can the United States learn from China's approaches?
