Join us for the 8th annual Sustainability Institute for Educators as we focus the conversation on threading sustainability education through all lessons.  The Institute will feature a mix of special guest speakers, tools and resources, and hands-on experiences. We will focus on exploring the connections between sustainability and curriculum, uncovering the interdisciplinary nature of sustainability education, and providing resources, tools, and insight into how we as educators can help support students that are sustainability literate, active stewards of the planet.
