Thank you for your interest in the Environment 2042 Leadership Program for Washington, Oregon and California environmental educators. The cohort will convene a diverse cadre of professionals engaged in all aspects of environmental education (broadly defined to include culturally specific educators; folks working on environmental justice; environmental educators; and others) in Washington, Oregon and California.

There are a number of narrative questions in the survey. If you prefer to talk through your narrative answers, please reach out to: or

We recommend copying the open-ended questions, collecting your responses in another document and inputting them once you have a complete application. We're happy to share a PDF of the survey to support your process.

We encourage creative responses to the narrative questions. Past participants have: 
o   Requested an interview to talk through the questions
o   Prepared a poem, video, artwork, or other creative work that speaks to the E42 program outcomes and why you want to be a part of the cohort.
We will contact you when a final decision has been made about E42 participants.
With gratitude,

The CDE team
