We are thrilled to kick off the new year by inviting you to "meet up" on January 27. ChangeScale's original announcement of this event was met with such enthusiastic response that we have changed the venue to accommodate the number of RSVPs:
Monday, January 27 from 1-4pm, followed by a networking hour
at The General’s Residence at Fort Mason.
Meet new colleagues, learn and share about environmental education pathways, hear an overview of a new and exciting network analysis of Bay Area environmental learning and behavior, find ways that you and your organization can engage in ChangeScale, enjoy cocoa and cookies!
Schedule of Activities
- Opening activity
- Welcome – Doug Overman, Golden Gate Parks Conservancy; Elizabeth Babcock, California Academy of Sciences; Jason Morris, NatureBridge
- Importance of Collaboration to Environmental Education Funders – David Beckman and Randi Fisher, Pisces Foundation
- Organizational Network Analysis – Drs. Nicole Ardoin and Deborah Wojcik, Stanford University
Drs. Ardoin and Wojcik will share preliminary network analysis results from their study on environmental learning and environmental behavior in the San Francisco Bay Area. They will highlight how organizations are working together to create an environmental learning landscape in the Bay Area and garner your feedback on what these preliminary results might mean for your organization.
- Exploring Pathways – Rita Bell, Monterey Bay Aquarium; Eric Aaholm, Youth Enrichment Strategies; Craig Goldman, Mountain View Whisman School District. Moderated by Craig Strang, The Lawrence Hall of Science
Sometimes called an education pipeline or continuum, a pathway is a set of educational experiences that connect knowledge and skills. This panel will look at three different types of pathway programs already happening in our region.
- Breakout Sessions: Regionally-focused pathway creation
What types of pathways would best serve your community’s needs? Participants will be divided into small groups based on geography to discuss pathway possibilities within their region.
- Cocoa and Cookies Networking Hour – Hosted by the Environmental Education Funders Collaborative
We do ask that you register here if you are planning to attend. If you RSVPed at an earlier date, please confirm your ability to attend by registering through this page. Thank you! We look forward to learning and sharing together.

ChangeScale—a partnership effort in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, founded in 2011 as the Environmental Education Collaborative—seeks to embed environmental education as a foundation for learning. Through an open dialogue with practitioners, researchers, and funders who share a common interest, we work together to identify strategies to increase the impact of environmental education.
