EarthEd: Rethinking Education on a Changing Planet
April 20 @ 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM EDT
The Worldwatch Institute analyzes how we can equip students with the skills to navigate the turbulent century ahead. With global environmental changes locked into our future, what we teach must evolve. All education will need to be environmental education, teaching students to be ecoliterate, deep-thinking, and deeply moral leaders, ready to face unprecedented challenges. EarthEd explores traditional areas of environmental education such as nature-based learning and systems thinking, as well as new essential topics including social-emotional learning and the importance of play. The event will be broadcast from Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina.
