Education & Sustainability

Speakers cover environmental education, environmental literacy, and the overall greening of schools, colleges and universities. Greening schools involves a comprehensive incorporation of sustainability issues in all relevant course offerings, curricula, textbooks, related educational materials, campus-wide programs, and K-12 assembly programs. Greening education also involves changes in existing school and campus buildings and operations, green building for new facilities, green vehicles for fleet additions, green purchasing, and other related reforms to operating practices. In addition, speakers cover environmental education occurring outside formal educational settings, including programs for the general public, social marketing, and green or eco-parenting.

Greening Schools & Universities. Large educational institutions are often like small cities. They build, maintain, and operate buildings, infrastructure, utilities, and landscaping, dispose of wastes and recycle, buy a huge variety of things, procure, maintain, and operate vehicle fleets, and much more. Greening these functions is a major opportunity. See Debra Rowe, Jerry Yudelson, Hillary Brown, Dan Chiras, and Eric Corey Freed.

K-12 School Programs. These are generally programs given in school wide assemblies to compliment environmental education themes or events. See Daniel Dancer, Reese Halter, Rusty Johnson, Michael Klubock, Sharon Abreu, and Debbie S. Miller.

Careers That Make A Difference. Whether starting a career upon leaving school, making a mid-life career shift, starting a business, or adding a green dimension to a business already underway, your career or business decisions can make a real difference in the world. See Melissa Everett, Natalia Allen, and Diane MacEachern.

Social Marketing. Selling behavior change for the public good isn't best approached like selling soap. Marketing experts have developed unique methods that are often much more effective than conventional techniques. See Doug McKenzie-Mohr, Nancy Lee, Annette Frahm, Diane MacEachern, and Walter McGuire.

K-12 Environmental Education. It is difficult to overstate the importance of environmental education. Popular understanding of the relationships between society and the natural foundation upon which civilization is constructed is critical to our future, and exposure to nature is likewise vitally important to the healthy emotional and cognitive development of children and young adults. See Cheryl Charles, Reese Halter, Zoe Weil, Debbie Miller, Dan Chiras, Chris Maser, Michael Klubock, Sharon Abreu, and Jeff Hohensee.

Green Parenting. Parents, care-givers, teachers, extended family and others with roles in raising and educating kids often want to know what they can do to help kids appreciate the natural world and understand the importance of stewardship. At the same time, greening the practical elements of parenting, from cloth diapers to healthy baby food to non-toxic toys, is an important part of a green lifestyle and beneficial and healthful for kids. And to complete the picture, exposing kids to the natural world is increasingly thought by many to play an important role in healthy emotional and intellectual development. See Dan Chiras, Zoe Weil, Lynda Fassa, and Michael Castleman.
