Schools for Ecological Education

Please take note of the links to the right under "Groups" for two sites I found that relate to Bob Newman's reminders to us of the need to educate our children in cooperative values for ecological living and creativity.

The Center for Ecoliteracy has many programs for educating children, including "Schooling for Sustainability" and a discussion guide for the movie "Food, Inc."

Eco-Schools are educational programs where the children help to create, administer, and evaluate the content and progress of the environmental program.

Northwest Earth Institute (NWEI) has adult-oriented thematic group-study courses in the areas of food, healthy children, voluntary simplicity, sustainable living, climate change, and more. The New Environment Association has facilitated the Voluntary Simplicity course and will use the NWEI model in a book study on David Gershon's "Social Change 2.0: A Blueprint for Reinventing Our World."

Please add other web sites to our lists by contacting Susan Adair, You may also request to be an author for this blog and post information and opinions that you'd like to share. Namaste
