Making a Difference: What MEEA is Doing Today

Dedicated to developing an environmentally responsible citizenry in Missouri since 1996.

Show-Me Green Schools

The Missouri Green Schools program helps our schools track progress and earn recognition for achievements in health, sustainability, and learning. This pathway to state and national recognition is jointly administered by MEEA and the USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter.


MEEA provides a structured pathway to professional certification in the environmental education field. Our certification program ensures you have the knowledge, understanding, and skills to be an effective voice for the environment.

Environmental Literacy Advisory Board

MEEA coordinates two meetings per year to foster collaboration and support state-wide EE initiatives. Representatives from state agencies, schools, non-profits, universities, and businesses come together, lending their expertise to grow strategic large-scale projects.

What MEEA Does


We believe coming together to share ideas, expertise, challenges, and success stories is a great way to grow. MEEA has hosted an annual EE conference since 1996, and joined the Sustainability Institute for Educators collaborative team in 2019.


Keeping our wide-spread members connected is important! Our content-rich monthly newsletter is filled with upcoming events, timely advice, and unique opportunities from across the state.

Environmental Educator Mini-Grant

Sometimes a little help goes a long way. We annually award six grants of $250 each to purchase materials or supplies for advancing environmental or sustainability education.
