Schooling for Sustainability: Strategies That Make Learning Come Alive

Recommended by Washington State Farm to School Coordinator Tricia Kovacs, this exciting three-day seminar builds on the Center for Ecoliteracy’s acclaimed book, Smart by Nature: Schooling for Sustainability. It is designed to give participants ideas, resources, and inspiration they can take home to make teaching more engaging, effective, and memorable.

The seminar includes presentations and demonstrations by sustainability education leaders, exposure to inspiring projects, hands-on practice with techniques that work, and reflective conversations with seminar faculty and fellow educators.
