About EE 30 Under 30

Since 2016, NAAEE’s EE 30 Under 30 program has recognized 241 individuals from 47 countries who are making a difference through environmental education. To address today’s complex challenges, we need a diversity of perspectives, skills, and experiences. EE 30 Under 30 celebrates the unique and passionate leadership of talented young leaders around the world and gives them a professional boost to increase their impact. Each year our awardees join a growing alumni network of inspiring environmental education leaders and receive ongoing opportunities to network, grow professionally, and promote their work. This program is made possible by the Global Environmental Education Partnership and the U.S. Forest Service

About the Call

Young people around the world are creating lasting change for both people and the planet. NAAEE’s EE 30 Under 30 shines the spotlight on these changemakers who demonstrate passion, commitment, and leadership using environmental education. The EE 30 Under 30 Class of 2024 will receive global recognition, join a growing community of inspiring EE leaders, and have access to ongoing opportunities for professional development and networking. 

Environmental education (EE) and leadership shows up in many different forms! We aim to recognize leaders with a wide range of backgrounds, who are reaching various audiences, and bring a diversity of perspectives to EE. We highly encourage nominees from across sectors and disciplines to apply. We welcome nominees who are:

  • Working at any scale: local, national, regional, or global, just to name a few!
  • In any position or role: community organizer, director, consultant, artist, teacher, and much more.
  • Using education in any context: in schools, businesses, communities, church groups, networks, government, the media—you name it!


  • Nominees must be 30 years old or younger (as of December 31, 2024). If you are over 30, you can still nominate someone else!
  • Nominees can come from anywhere in the world.
  • Nominations must be in English, but your nomination will not be judged based on your English language ability.
  • Nominees must be using EE to address sustainability issues, build a more inclusive environmental movement, and/or create healthier and more civically engaged communities. Read more about key elements of EE here.
  • Nominees must demonstrate some leadership in EE, but you do not need to be in a leadership position to demonstrate leadership! This can include (but is not limited to!) inspiring others to take action towards a shared vision, listening to and taking action for the needs of your community, innovating in the face of challenges, creating inclusive environments for participation and engagement, and much more.
  • Video requirement: All nominees need to submit a short introduction video (90 seconds max) and provide a letter of support. Please take a close look at the application, whether you are nominating yourself or someone else, to understand these requirements.
