Walton named to NAAEE's "30 under 30"
Olivia Walton was selected by The North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE) for its fifth class of 30 leaders under the age of 30. She will join a growing class of young leaders using environmental education to build sustainable and equitable communities around the world.
The Class of 2020 will join the global EE 30 Under 30 community of leaders, and will receive ongoing support to expand their impact through networking, peer mentoring, professional development, and grant opportunities. All recipients will receive a fully-funded scholarship to attend the NAAEE Annual Conference, taking place virtually this year from October 13–16.
Since 2016, NAAEE's EE 30 Under 30 program has recognized 150 individuals from 34 countries who are making a difference through environmental education. This program is made possible by Wells Fargo, the Global Environmental Education Partnership, and the U.S. Forest Service.
