Educating for Sustainability
June 02, 2009
Collaborating groups: West Linn/Wilsonville School District
Faculty contact: Greg Smith
The Educating for Sustainability Initiative in the West Linn/Wilsonville School District is aimed at developing teams of teachers in each district school who are knowledgeable about sustainability issues and committed to providing their students with opportunities to explore and address them. The initiative includes a graduate-level course offered in the Spring and Fall and a Summer Institute that provide participants with a chance to deepen their understanding about sustainability; meet with local people who are developing innovative approaches to business, agriculture, energy production, and education; and experience some of the possibilities of sustainability education themselves.
