Overview

The Youth Outdoor Policy Partnership is a collaboration of leading national organizations working across sectors to ensure that all children have access to high quality outdoor experiences and environmental education. 

We developed the Youth Outdoor Policy Playbook as a tool to help legislators and community leaders advance state policies that bring the benefits of time spent outdoors to more young people. It is designed to highlight existing and promising policy solutions, share the knowledge and expertise of environmental education and outdoor engagement champions, and connect on statewide policy initiatives across sectors. 

We want to ensure the Youth Outdoor Policy Playbook stays up-to-date and current with innovative new policy ideas, state-level efforts, and current organizational priorities. This survey will ask for your ideas and a short update on your work for our priority issue areas.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to Cassidy Gasteiger (cgasteiger@merid.org) with any questions about the survey, or the the leads with the YOPP from each organization:
