Join local teachers to explore the Big Ideas of Sustainability and how they relate and connect to your current curriculum. Discover the value of place-based pedagogy in a beautiful setting for environmental education, the Wildlife Education Center of the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum in Cornwall-on-Hudson, NY.
What do the key practices and principles of Education for Sustainability look like in action? Participants will build conceptual understanding of the 12 Big Ideas of Sustainability through interactive games, discussion and small group work. Concepts like interdependence, cycles, equilibrium and long-term effects can be readily connected to existing curriculum. CELF will share real world models that put the Big Ideas of Sustainability into practice across content areas and grade levels. CELF will support participants as they learn to identify and emphasize the Big Ideas at play in their classroom, school and community.
