Professor Daniel Blumstein at The White House

Professor Daniel Blumstein was invited and participated in a moderated pannel discussion at the first ever White House Summit on Environmental Education on 16 April in Washington. The Summit brought together public and private partners and was aimed to develop a new vision for effective environmental education. Last year, Dan co-authored a book with Charles Saylan called "The Failure of Environmental Education (And How We Can Fix It)". Ideas developed at the summit will be brought to a high-level interagency task-force that will develop future plans for environmental education both nationally and more locally.
