Teaching and Learning for a Sustainable Future with Lester Brown
Lester R. Brown, Founder and President of Earth Policy Institute, discussed his new book Plan B 4.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization and questions us as teachers: “Will we follow in the footsteps of the Sumerians and the Mayans or can we change course—and do it before time runs out? Can we move onto an economic path that is environmentally sustainable?” This 50-page resource booklet helps educators tackles these and other hard questions in the classroom. It provides teachers with access to Earth Policy Institute resources and includes extensive up-to-date resources and lesson plans on climate and energy, population pressure, food security, and urban design. New features include lesson plans featuring STEM topics and local volunteer/action opportunities.
