Environmental History Week is an international celebration of environmental history, organized by environmental historians of all stripes to foster scholarly collaboration, teaching and public engagement with environmental history. This year, Environmental History Week will highlight on public-facing environmental history events and activities.
Environmental History Week is April 18-24, 2022.
Please join us by organizing an event in your area, and sending information to us so we can publicize it on the Environmental History Week events calendar on the ASEH.org website.
Environmental History Week events can take many forms. In person, face-to-face events could be walking or biking tours of your community; hands-on projects in collaboration with non-profits in your area; environmental history lectures on a campus or at a public library or museum; or a film series.
Digital events are welcome, too, from online conferences to streamed films with online discussions; self-guided field trips; or a virtual museum exhibits. Got students creating storymaps or online exhibits? Share their work the EHW2022 program, too!
Environmental History Week 2022 will provide rich opportunities for intellectual exchange, and for engaging the public, K-12 teachers, and scholars in adjacent fields. It complements the ASEH in-person conference in Eugene, Oregon, March 23-26, and the virtual component in April. We'd love to see you at both!
