Journal ArticleDigital resources are stored online in your NSTA Library.

In order to help middle school students understand the many aspects that go into making decisions about environmental issues and concerns, as well as identifying the players involved in these decisions, an environmental town meeting activity was developed by the author. It includes opportunities to learn how the viewpoints of environmental professionals, community stakeholders, and community decision makers are important in making decisions that will affect a community’s environment. This activity allows students to combine learning about environmental issues in their community with learning about local governmental processes and civic engagement.
