Abstract: 

The goal for environmental education (EE) is to help citizens become more environmentally literate. The MPCA's programs support environmental education in Minnesota by providing:

  • Curricula, training, videos and other resources.
  • Coordination, facilitation and partnership-building.
  • Expertise and guidance for program development.
  • Funding to support education programming.
  • Our strategy to achieve the goal of environmental literacy is to focus our work on "capacity building" for environmental education-developing effective organizations and individual leaders in order to achieve comprehensive EE programs at the state, regional and local level. Through comprehensive efforts Minnesotans are better able to learn about and make decisions concerning their environment.

    About the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency:
    To continue moving Minnesota toward environmental excellence, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) monitors environmental quality, offers technical and financial assistance, and enforces environmental regulations.

    The agency finds and cleans up spills or leaks that can affect our health and environment. Staff develop statewide policy, and support environmental education.
