The Sustainability Spotlight is in partnership with MUSE School.
Together with MUSE School

Sustainability Summit celebrates selected innovations

"Teaching, applying and advocating sustainability in schools is crucial to the future of our children's lives as well as the future of our planet."  

- Suzy Cameron, Co-Founder of MUSE School
 

The HundrED Spotlight on Sustainability highlights the innovative practices happening in education that address this important issue. We spent nine months researching sustainability in education and identifying the people already making this a priority in their educational settings. Together in partnership with MUSE School, California, and with the help of an expert advisory board, we’ve selected ten innovations which are impactful, address sustainability in a fresh way and have either spread to other settings or have the potential to!

The chosen projects were celebrated at the Sustainability Summit in Calabasas in November 2018.
