    I’m a graduate student in California studying environmentalism in the Arab World. I’m wondering can I receive a copy of “Environmental Education in the Arab World” for research purposes?

    Is it published?

      I’m the coordinator of the EEN. Send me a note at my email address and I will have a look through registration from the 2011 EEN Forum to see if I can get you the author’s contact information. Glad you’re interested. We have an EEN event planned for DC and Mexico in July and another in Sweden in early 2012. Far from Oman…maybe we need an EEN event in your region. Let’s chat.
