We are happy to share an invite to an upcoming webinar hosted by one of NWEI’s partners, The Cloud Institute for Sustainability. The topic will be on Educating for Sustainability. The Cloud Institute prepares K-12 school systems and their communities to educate for a sustainable future by inspiring educators and engaging students through meaningful content and learner-centered instruction. For more info on this webinar opportunity, please click here. Here is a description of what will be addressed:

In this 2-hour interactive webinar, we will begin by exploring the whole system of EfS and the rationale for our approach.  Then, we will zoom in to discuss what it takes for a school to educate for sustainability, and what it looks like (and what it doesn’t look like) in curriculum.  Finally, we will walk through the practice of “sustainablizing” units of study so that students are prepared with the “different way of thinking” required to lead with us the shift toward a sustainable future.

At the end of the session, participants will be invited to beta test our “EfS Reality Check,” a new tool designed for educators to determine the extent to which their school is already educating for sustainability, and to provide insight on strategic next steps.

Wednesday, December 7th | 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM EST    OR     Saturday, December 10th | 10 AM – 12 PM EST
