Vermont SWEEP: State-Wide Environmental Education Programs is a coalition of dozens of individuals and more than 60 organizations promoting environmental education in Vermont. VT SWEEP’s purpose is to foster environmental appreciation and understanding in order to enable Vermonters to make responsible decisions affecting the environment. Since 1973, VT SWEEP members have been meeting regularly to exchange information and to coordinate efforts among Vermonters involved and interested in environmental education.
VT SWEEP’s Goals are to: improve the quality and increase the effectiveness of environmental education in Vermont by coordinating the efforts of environmental educators; provide an environmental education information and resource network among educators, environmental organizations, schools, colleges, universities, state agencies, and others who are interested; encourage Vermont educators to become more deeply involved with environmental education and to provide the necessary tools to help them accomplish this; and advocate for positive environmental education policies and programs.
