Connect with teachers from around the country as we explore Education for Sustainability (EfS) through CELF's Big Ideas. Guest teachers will join us to share "bright spots,” which will model the best practices to incorporate the Big Ideas into your virtual, hybrid, or in-person K-12 classrooms. Teachers will walk away with concepts and applications to establish EfS as a powerful lens for learning.

Sign up for one or all three sessions today! Full scholarships are available!

Thursdays @ 7pm ET/6pm CT
October 21st | November 18th | December 16th

Step Up for Sustainable Schools Campaign
Teachers and students are heading into an uncertain school year, amidst an uncertain future for our planet and world.

Despite this, there were many triumphs in the transition to remote learning, with the resiliency of our youth and persistence of our teachers on full display.

Our approach to teaching through a sustainability lens helps to reinforce these positive outcomes by encouraging teachers - and their students - to recognize the importance of place, the power of community, and our ability to make a difference as both individuals and as a collective.
