Recently the former Washington Geographic Alliance was reconstituted as the Geo-Literacy Alliance. With support from National Geographic Society and in a new home at the University of Washington Institute for Science and Math Education, Alliance leadership is engaged in a  planning process to design an organization that will 1.) promote leadership in geo-literacy throughout the state; and 2.) produce models and resources for the broader community of Alliance educators. The organization will leverage connections between geo-literacy, STEM disciplines, and a rich array of private and public interests in contemporary geographical sciences. A specific strategy we are developing will target local, personally relevant community and environmental issues tied to geo-literacy and STEM education. Over the course of 2012-13 our leadership group, with expertise in geography, STEM disciplines, educational research, policy, and philanthropy, is immersed in a year-long dialogue with stakeholders throughout Washington.
