We invite you to join us and lead. Together, we can be a relevant and unified voice for environmental education.
By joining ChangeScale, you will be investing in not only this larger regional vision for environmental education, but also in professional development for your team that is relevant, local, and collaborative. All ChangeScale members receive free entry for all of their staff to ChangeScale’s four annual professional development offerings, which address relevant topics facing our field, provide tools for integrating research into practice, and build community. By learning side by side with colleagues from the region, you and your staff receive top-quality training in an atmosphere of partnership and support.
Additional benefits include:
- Access to members-only networking events, communications, and data
- Advance access to Environmental Education Research Bulletins and other ChangeScale produced publications
- Priority listing in ChangeScale’s online newsletter and website (in the Community Jobs and Community Events sections)
- ChangeScale logo to display on your website, if desired
All interested organizations within the twelve counties of the San Francisco and Monterey Bay Area are eligible to join ChangeScale as institutional members.
ChangeScale membership contributions are paid on an annual basis in October – December of each year. Dues are arranged on a sliding scale. We understand that each organization has unique circumstances.
ChangeScale is a way we are putting action behind our needs and desires to have a working network that doesn’t merely connect our work, but aligns and amplifies it. We are demonstrating the type of community we need in this work, realizing there is more to do and more to include, but still making sure we move forward together.
