How can educators apply systems thinking to create authentic pathways for learning transfer and sense-making for students? Join me as we explore how the 5-S: science, students, schools, society, and sustainability, can be integrated through the 17 United Nations sustainable development goals to create transformative interdisciplinary campus-based studies. Teachers will increase their understanding of ESD; learn about a range of strategies, activities, and ideas; and gain access to resources and interactive tools they can use in their practice tomorrow!
Elementary (K-5), Middle School (6-8), High School (9-12)
