Environmental Education for Stormwater Stewardship

Education for green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) is critical for enhancing the public’s knowledge regarding the structure and benefits of GSI facilities, which increases public support, management, and stewardship of present and future GSI initiatives. However, practitioners are often not trained in environmental education and, therefore, likely lack skills in constructing educational modules that effectively convey GSI knowledge while addressing residents’ specific concerns. Additionally, there is a significant gap in the literature regarding studies that assess existing educational modules’ ability to increase the public’s understanding and encourage behavioral change for GSI adoption.

Concerning the gaps in the literature, this study aims to answer the following overarching questions: RQ1. What constitutes a successful educational module for GSI? RQ2. What are the strongest predictors of GSI behavior change?
