Sustainability is in the headlines daily. Just weeks ago, the UN warned the world needs to unite for timely action on the environment if we are to avoid climate catastrophe. When we need a powerful tool to change the world, it’s education that we turn to.
Do you ever wonder who is doing the work to bring sustainability to the forefront of education discourse? Which innovators are pushing the boundaries when it comes to sustainability in schools?
We’ve teamed up with MUSE School, California, to shine a spotlight on the innovators bringing evidence-based and scalable education approaches to the table, creating impact and a brighter future for children today. We’ve selected 10 innovations from around the globe and we’re gearing up to celebrate them on 2nd November 2018 at the Sustainability Summit in Calabasas. Registrations to attend are now open.
The 3-day Sustainability Summit takes place at the MUSE School campus from November 1 - 3rd. Kicking off with a welcome from MUSE co-founder Rebecca Amis, the summit will include talks from the selected innovators and a keynote from Suzy Amis Cameron, MUSE co-founder and author of recently released One Meal A Day. Saku Tuominen, Founder of HundrED, will speak on the need to focus on sustainability in education, and Natalie Day, HundrED Sustainability Spotlight Researcher, will share key findings from the inaugural Sustainability in Education Report, to be released during the Summit.
The program is packed with speakers, including Senator Henry Stern, environmental activist and health advocate, and Dr. Reese Halter, Scientist, Journalist and Author of Shepherding the Sea: the Race to Save our Oceans. Elliot Washor of Big Picture Learning will speak on Sustainability in Public Schools. Plus, there will be fireside discussions with Tracey Winey and John Howe, co-founders of Engineering Brightness, Kelly Meyer from Teaching Gardens, and Laura Hickey of Eco-Schools.
But that’s not all. Attendees will get to experience MUSE School staff and students' passion for sustainability first hand. MUSE School teachers and HundrED Ambassadors Randi Kearney, Katelyn Patterson, and Tressa Wyner will host a fireside discussion on Academic Milestones for Sustainability, while Paul Hudak, Rick Perillo, and Russ Mallen will share the secrets of the school’s Seed-To-Table Program. Plant-based chef and student, Rio Caster, age 16, will be preparing the meals and there will even be live music performances from students and staff, too.
