What is EFS? Education for Sustainability calls on us to help students understand the connection between the environmental integrity, economic vitality, and social well-being of the planet now and into the future. Join educators from all disciplines and levels to delve into EFS topics, issues, and concepts, using the lens of sustainability to investigate local human and natural communities. Uncover various strategies, themes, and techniques to provide students with place-based, standards-based, meaningful experiences that engage them as decision-makers creating sustainable communities. Learn from and share with EFS practitioners who have successfully incorporated sustainability into their curriculum, school, and communities. Participants will develop an integrated EFS unit or project using the big ideas of sustainability and their local community.
