Exploring the Power of Place in Educating for Sustainability

This winter-spring we're excited to offer educators in Vermont and beyond a chance to connect virtually and in place to explore promising practices in place based education.  Each program touches on the power of place in our practices as educators, supporting student learning and agency, or engaging us in meaningful work in our communities.  

 

Each workshop or series has a unique focus but all will provide you inspiration for making purposeful place-based connections in your classroom and curriculum.  Below you'll find basic information about each of the winter-spring 2021 workshops as well as links for detailed information and registration details.  We hope you'll join us for one or more!
