2019 CELF Summer Institute-New York City, NY

07/29/2019 - 07/31/2019


Today's students are tomorrow's leaders!  Discover how to transform student learning into an authentic exploration of real-world problems and solutions and inspire your students to become Earth Citizens of a sustainable future. 

The CELF Summer Institute in Education for Sustainability (EfS) is an intensive multi-day workshop that enables teachers to integrate the concepts of sustainability into their existing curricula. The Institute equips K-12 teachers with practices and teaching methods to address the core concepts of EfS – the intersection of social, economic, and ecological systems – and how the balance of those three systems is vital to a sustainable future, and relevant to all subject areas.

The Institute begins by building a learning community and a common vocabulary around sustainability, and progresses with hands-on activities, case studies, guest presentations, evening excursions and field work. The schedule includes supported planning time so that participants will have tangible materials to bring back to their classrooms.
