Recognizing the value of diversity and inclusiveness to advance environmental education; CAEE, including our staff, leadership, membership, and audiences, commits to:

CAEE defines diversity in its broadest sense and welcomes everyone to the field of environmental education and the Alliance, including but not limited to people of all races, ethnicities, genders, gender expressions, sexual orientations, abilities, ages, national origins, socioeconomic status, religious affiliations, languages, and heritages.
