MUSE School: Teaching, applying and advocating sustainability in schools is crucial
We're thrilled to announce that we're partnering with MUSE School, CA, to launch a Spotlight on Sustainability! This global initiative will discover ten scalable K12 education innovations that have the potential to increase sustainability in schools around the world.
HundrED Spotlights are in-depth collections of ten innovations that focus on a location or theme in education. With a world population of 7 billion people and limited natural resources, it is imperative that individuals and societies learn to live together sustainably. As announced at SXSWEdu, the HundrED Spotlight on Sustainability will address the central role that education will play in creating a more sustainable world.
The mission of MUSE School is to inspire and prepare young people to live consciously with themselves, one another, and the planet. "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," comments Suzy Amis Cameron, Co-Founder of MUSE School. “We are thrilled to partner with HundrED who shares in our mission to support and share education innovations that will teach our youth how to be healthier and to live in a more environmentally friendly world.”
We're looking for impactful and scalable innovations that have a proven track record and potential to work all over the world. The innovations can be either pedagogical or improving sustainability at a school or district level. Whether your work is for profit or non-profit, whether it's analog or digital and whatever its size - we want to hear about it!
Innovators that meet the criteria can submit their innovation by May 31, 2018. An advisory panel will help make the selection of the final ten innovations and the chosen projects will be announced in November 2018 at the Sustainability Summit in Calabasas. All of the selected innovations will be featured in the Sustainability in Education Report and will be promoted all over the world.
”The world is full of amazing education innovations that have potential to make change happen in all continents. Unfortunately they seldom get the visibility they deserve and struggle to spread,” said Saku Tuominen, Founder of HundrED. “Our mission is to change this. We are thrilled to partner with MUSE School to discover and share some of the brightest education innovations addressing sustainability and to help them flourish and scale nationally and even globally.”
