Foundations in Education for Sustainability 2023

Educator Programs
Teachers gather around a table covered in markers and colorful posters at the Coach Barn.

Designed to be dynamic and democratic, Foundations in EFS offers teachers the time and space to develop projects of personal interest while providing opportunities to learn from colleagues and other leaders in the field of Education for Sustainability. Interactive sessions will feature a blend of individual work time, peer-to-peer feedback, resource sharing, hands-on learning experiences, and large and small group discussions. Our overall goal is to ensure participants have the opportunity to develop connections between curriculum and community, work and dialogue together, and reflect in an inspiring setting that models sustainability and systems-thinking.
