Cornerstone Programs

Education happens when learners connect with their subject matter. Our work combines storytelling - the world's oldest means of communication - with the modern tools of technology to build that connection. We use our expertise in the four cornerstone programs above to facilitate environmental literacy and stewardship. 

Our Purpose

To foster environmental literacy and stewardship in citizens of all ages.

A leader in environmental storytelling through digital and multimedia, the Center for Global Environmental Education ("CGEE") works with teachers, students, community leaders, and concerned citizens to connect learners of all ages with the environment. For over three decades, the Center for Global Environmental Education has inspired learning and produced outstanding educational resources. 

The Center's pioneering work in environmental education is grounded in the tradition of progressive learning that has been a hallmark of Hamline University's School of Education. The Center's strategic use of technology creates and supports global communities of learners committed to the stewardship of local environments.
