Arizona State will help teachers educate students about sustainability issues
Today’s students will become tomorrow’s leaders, and educating them about sustainability is increasingly important in light of the complex social, economic and environmental issues the world faces.
Arizona State University’s new National Sustainability Teachers’ Academy aims to bring teams of elementary, middle, and high school teachers from across the nation together to establish an educational task force for sustainability.
As a program of ASU’s Rob and Melani Walton Sustainability Solutions Initiatives, the teachers’ academy will focus on solutions-based curriculum with an emphasis on urban systems. ASU sustainability scientists and scholars will help coach and lead hands-on sessions on solutions surrounding food, water, energy, and climate.
