Connect with teachers from around the country as we explore Education for Sustainability (EfS) through CELF’s Big Ideas. Guest teachers will join us to share “bright spots,” which will model the best practices to incorporate the Big Ideas into your virtual, hybrid, or in-person K-12 classrooms.  Teachers will walk away with concepts and applications to establish EfS as a powerful lens for learning.

Past CELF Participant Testimonials


“Rooting my classroom in education for sustainability has changed my view of teaching and my students’ views on learning in school. They are more enthusiastic than ever, as we explore nature, outdoor classroom settings, field research, service learning activities, and a myriad of other activities that I learned from my time with CELF.”
