Meridian Institute provides facilitation and project management for the Youth Outdoor Policy Partnership. The partnership is a collaboration of leading national organizations working together to advance state-level policies that get kids outside everywhere they live, learn, work, and play.
The partnership recently launched the Youth Outdoor Policy Playbook as a tool to support and inspire those advancing policy-driven solutions. The playbook highlights existing and promising initiatives for increasing youth outdoor engagement. It also provides a platform for connecting sectors and states to share ideas and inspiration.
The partnership includes the Children & Nature Network, the Outdoors Alliance for Kids, the North American Association for Environmental Education, and the National Caucus of Environmental Legislators. The Youth Outdoor Policy Partnership is funded by Pisces Foundation and REI.
