Nature-Based Sustainability Education digitized
Virtual field trips for challenging times.
Sustainability and conservation are critical themes we must grapple with in the 21st century. Our students will be equipped with an understanding of the state of the environment, biodiversity, conservation, and energy while being invited to devise solutions to the challenges they are inheriting.
We help students realize the power of sustained local impact and further encourage systems thinking to find and address downstream implications of our actions.
Through live, interactive sessions, students will be virtually immersed in on-the-ground projects in reforestation, renewable energy, conservation, and more!
Classes will be taught in 45 minute to one hour sessions, designed to be integrated at least once per week. Our packages are currently suitable for up 15-20 students. Organizations may choose to incorporate different packages individually or as a whole - whatever best suits the complete education in sustainability.
