Environmental Literacy, Global Competence & Design Thinking for Student Agency and Civic Action
Our year-long program begins with a 5-day institute that creates space for learning, planning, and collaboration with CGEP teacher leaders, university faculty, sustainability professionals, and community leaders. Teachers may participate in follow-up field studies, webinars, and coaching sessions during the school year. The program culminates with a student showcase of their learning and sustainability action projects in the Spring.
