Program Agenda

The Cloud Institute for Sustainability Education prepares pre-K-12 school systems to educate for a sustainable future by inspiring educators and engaging students through meaningful content and learner-centered instruction.

Education for Sustainability (EfS) teaches students the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and habits of mind necessary to become responsible citizens who can achieve economic prosperity and restore the health of the social and ecological systems upon which we depend. EfS has multiple, positive effects on student achievement, commitment to democratic participation, teacher effectiveness, and school culture.

In this 5-day curriculum design studio, educators, administrators, and program designers learn how to design and embed EfS into curricula, assessments, and performance tasks without the need for additional class time.

You get access to expertise, resources, and tools to reorient and enrich curricula. Through working sessions, learning circles, coaching, peer review, and optional mini-sessions, you create and develop units and protocols that educate for sustainability.
