Non-Formal Environmental Education Best Practices

Asked February 4, 2014, 2:36 PM EST

I am wanting to run non-formal Environmental Education programs worldwide for school aged students and focused on outdoor activities with minimal material requirements. I would liked to be steered towards already existing materials and or organizations considered to possess best practices, thank you.
