Sustainability can start in your classroom! Now more than ever we are realizing the intersection of social and environmental justice and the fragility of the systems that support health and wellbeing. In order to support students in exploring these connections, we invite you to join us for a new mini-course offered in partnership with the University of Vermont. Together we’ll deepen our understanding of social-ecological systems, consider strategies for youth voice and agency, and practice change-making skills to transform the systems in which we work.

Program with out graduate credit meets July 12-15 , 9-11:30am ET Monday-Thursday with 1- 1.5 hours of asynchronous time

Program with 3 graduate credit meets July 6-August 13 on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9-11am ET and July 12-15 , 9-11:30am ET Monday-Thursday; additional asynchronous time and course work.
