Event Details

Education for Sustainability (EFS) is an approach to learning rooted in holistic thinking, integration, and community engagement. Born from the environmental education movement, EFS takes a more expansive perspective on education, and builds the environment and social equity into its framework, offering support to students in understanding that the world is interconnected, knowledge of human and natural communities and the belief that individuals have the ability to make a difference. Join EFS leaders Jen Cirillo and Sarah Kadden of Shelburne Farms' Sustainable Schools Project for an interactive, in-dept conversation on how the Big Ideas and Promising Practices of EFS can support your work with students, whether you are working in formal or non-formal learning environments. 

 

Suitability: All formal and non-formal youth educators, and administrators.

 

Sarah Kadden is Education for Sustainability Partnerships Coordinator at Shelburne Farms in South Burlington Vermont where she works with schools and community partners to link education, inquiry, and action to create more just and sustainable communities. Jen Cirillo is the Director of Professional Development at Shelburne Farms, the Co-Chair of the US Partnership for Education for Sustainable Development (K-12 and Teacher Education Sector) and of VT Statewide Environmental Education Programs. She works with educators to use sustainability as a theme for curriculum, campus practices, and school transformation and regeneration.

Green Teacher receives no funding –other than donations - for the webinars, but doing them takes up lots of staff time.

Green Teacher is a non-profit organization which publishes resources to help educators, both inside and outside of schools, to promote global and environmental awareness among young people from elementary through high school. We publish Green Teacher, a quarterly magazine full of teaching ideas from successful “green” educators. Each issue of Green Teacher offers perspectives on the role of education in creating a sustainable future, practical cross-curricular activities for various grade levels, and reviews of the latest teaching resources. Other Green Teacher publications to date include five resource books for educators: Greening School Grounds: Creating Habitats for Learning, Teaching About Climate Change: Cool Schools Tackle Global Warming (also published in French), Teaching Green: The Middle Years, Teaching Green: The Elementary Years, and Teaching Green: The High School Years.
