2019 Sustainability Institute for Educators – Exploring the World Around Us: Using Technology to Build Connections

For PK - 12th grade teachers

The 2019 Sustainability Institute for Educators will focus on the intersection of exploration, place and sustainability. Using technology as a vehicle, educators will investigate local and global connections - all from their own classroom, learning space or schoolyard. In its ninth year, this three-day institute challenges participants to help learners build awareness, recognize responsibility, and take action as global citizens working to build a sustainable world. The institute will feature a mix of special guest speakers, tools and resources, field studies, and hands-on experiences.

Presented by Webster University; Earthways Center of the Missouri Botanical Garden; Green Schools Council of Madison County, IL; US Green Building Council-Missouri Gateway Chapter; Mary Institute and St. Louis Country Day School; and the Saint Louis Zoo.

Fee:  $150 registration fee includes speaker fees, breakfast and lunch for all three days. Graduate credit is available, for an additional fee. Limited scholarships are available.
