STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

The Environmental Responsibility Professional Learning Network (PLN) recognizes that environmental issues frequently affect different groups of people differently. Marginalized populations disproportionately suffer from negative consequences of environmental destruction. Raising awareness of environmental injustice is thus a necessary component to respecting diversity and human rights. The Environmental Responsibility PLN believes that empowering students with the knowledge and resources they need to face current and future environmental problems is a core responsibility of all educators. We also believe that all organizations --- including schools and language programs ---have a responsibility to do their part in maintaining a healthy environment. The purpose of the Environmental Responsibility PLN is to bring together English teachers, program administrators, and other English language professionals interested in environmental issues. By serving as a place for TESOL professionals to exchange ideas in this area, we seek to advance professional expertise.
