Environmental education provides opportunities for students to engage in authentic inquiry into real-world problems, problem-solving solutions to issues, implementing action plans, and then measuring results. Through EE, teachers empower students to utilize each one of the 21st Century Skills: global awareness, financial literacy, health and wellness, resiliency, civic responsibility, and systems thinking.
At Green U, we want to teach educators how to address the 21st Century Skills and empower their students to put them into action. Workshop Sessions are being finalized, but may include:
Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE)
Food Waste & Rescue
Grant Writing & Finding Resources
School Gardens Curriculum and Implementation
Design Thinking through Outdoor Learning
Student-led Project-Based Learning
Join us in November to learn how to implement sustainability efforts at your school, build coalitions with your colleagues from around the District, and how to inspire the next generation of environmental stewards.
