Chapter Activities for Sustainability

Education for Sustainable Development

Educators have the responsibility for helping create a better future for everyone! Chapters have the opportunity to educate large numbers of individuals through strong programming advocating for social justice, racial and gender equity, environmental justice, and cultural diversity.

These ideas are from chapters’ Semester Celebration reports, award submissions, social media posts, or curriculum from respected organizations working in the field of Education for Sustainability (EfS).

Advocating for oppressed populations, the Kappa Eta Chapter planned multiple events to educate their surrounding community on working with those experiencing homelessness.

Searching your community for what it has and working together to determine what it needs to be fully resourced, members can discuss how teaching in areas lacking in adequate resources affects schools.
Creating Our FutureCreating Our Future
Focusing on various aspects of sustainable communities helps your chapter members create an action plan and then take steps within their own lives to address problems locally, nationally, and globally.
