1st Annual Sustainability Education Week

February 15-19, 2021
Each night from 7-8:30 p.m. on Zoom

There are many issues, such as poverty, hunger, social injustice, educational inequities, and environmental degradation, which threaten the sustainability of local and global communities. Current generations are feeling the impact of these issues more than ever before. As these threats affect our global community, it is important to adopt a mindset that we are all responsible for creating positive change. We need to gain a deeper understanding of these issues and collaborate with others in order to develop appropriate responsive actions. As educators, we need to promote positive change by making our own work more sustainable and by preparing our students to face the challenges set before them.

Sustainability Education Week is an annual, weeklong event held by Monmouth University’s School of Education with sessions each night designed to:

  1. Educate the community about sustainability issues
  2. Create a forum for discussion, reflection, and collaboration among school administrators, teachers, future educators, students, and Monmouth University faculty
  3. Offer professional development opportunities for teachers learning to integrate sustainability education into their curricula
  4. Share best practices and provide networks of support for schools and teachers
  5. Allow K-12 students to engage in challenges related to sustainability
