Preparing Future Citizens & Leaders

CELF’s integrated approach transforms learning into an authentic exploration of real-world problems, centered in and around the school community. Using sustainability as a guiding framework, we help schools embed place- and project-based learning into existing curriculum, across all subject areas. 

What is Education for Sustainability (EFS)?

EFS helps students understand the interconnectedness of the environment, economy, and society, and provides them with the skills, perspectives, values and knowledge to make responsible decisions for building a sustainable future.
