Join the World Affairs Council and Western Washington University’s Facing the Future on July 27th for an educator’s workshop on bringing global sustainability into your classroom. Teachers will be given an overview of sustainability education and investigate frameworks for looking at the world, exploring values, and finding solutions to bring about a more sustainable world. In addition, this session will look at ways to build sustainability skills and habits, such as personal responsibility and interconnectedness, and provide tangible ways to connect sustainability to your classroom projects and curriculum. Please join us for a rich discussion that will build global competency and 21st century skills among your students.
The workshop will be led by Ann Hempelmann, author of Big World, Small Planet
