“The Guidelines provide the method to make environmental education part of everyone's lives so we have an environmentally literate society. From early childhood, to integrating EE across the curriculum, to helping us select instructional materials, the Guidelines are our tools.”
- Brian Day, Former Executive Director, NAAEE
"They [the guidelines] not only help shape our programs, but lend further validity and strength to our programs and organization, as well as the entire field of environmental education.”
- Andree’ Walker, Executive Director, USEE
Educators use the guidelines in a wide variety of ways. They use them in staff training:

"As the US Forest Service’s Eastern Region Conservation Education Program Coordinator I used the http://www.marysvillecommunity.net/buy-viagra-no-prescription Nonformal Program Guidelines to aid in the review of a draft strategic plan for conservation education developed by a National Forest in the mid-west.

- Don Howlett, Eastern Region Conservation Education Program Coordinator, US Forest Service
"The guidelines also have a use in demonstrating to prospective funders that a program is educationally sound: As a reviewer of EPA EE Grants (Region 2) and NOAA’s BWET grants, I have been quick to point out to those submitting proposals that their proposals would be much more comprehensive and “scholarly” by mentioning use of the guidelines in two or three sentences, as a tool for enhancing the overall impact of generic cialis india their proposals."
- Frederick W. Stoss, Associate Librarian, University at Buffalo–SUNY
"In addition, many educators use the guidelines as they develop new educational materials: I’m currently using the guidelines in a collaborative effort with the teachers of Coathuasi, Peru, and an NGO called AEDES to develop new environmental education materials about environmental change in the Andes Mountains. I have provided them with a Spanish language version of the Materials Guidelines and am facilitating the only best offers viagra doses process of materials development with the guidelines concepts as our guide. Environmental monitoring and environmental education are of critical importance in this region, where climate change is having visible and dramatic impacts on the environment and people of the region."
