We’re proud to take part in Green From the Start, the Feb. 17 Urban Sustainability Forum at the Academy of Natural Sciences, where we’ll be sharing our exciting Educators Resource Center, EcoExpress.
Here are the Details:
Date: February 17, 2011. Reception: 6:00 pm. Program: 6:30 – 8:30 pm
How is our region educating the next generation of residents who will be living in a world of more limited resources, overpopulation, and more severe changes in climate?
February’s Urban Sustainability Forum will demonstrate the need for students and teachers in kindergarten through high school to have awareness, knowledge and skills in science, economics, technology, engineering, math, sociology, history, and art to create a new and more sustainable approach to living in southeast Pennsylvania.
The forum will showcase examples from local programs and institutions that are successfully taking on this challenge. Organizations from around the region with formal and informal education programs addressing sustainability and student awareness of the natural world will also be on hand to display their efforts and programs.
