The Education for Sustainability (EfS) framework is an evidence-based, transformative learning process developed by the Cloud Institute. It is based on systems thinking, sustainable economics, and the science of sustainability.
Instead of teaching kids about sustainability, it teaches them the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and habits of mind required to become responsible citizens who can achieve economic prosperity and restore the health of all living systems.
In this 5-day design studio, educators, administrators, and program designers learn how to design and embed EfS into curriculum, assessments, and programs.
In a structured context, you get access to expertise, coaching, resources, and tools to design elegant curricula for classroom use, create protocols for professional development, or lay out action plans to implement EfS in schools and communities.
Through working sessions, learning circles, coaching, peer review, and optional workshops, you are supported as you create and develop units and protocols that educate for sustainability.
