Sustainability education at its best should address the “say-do gap,” which behavior change experts cite as being the difference between saying what we believe and actually doing it. This webinar will provide resources for moving beyond knowledge acquisition to application, shared learning and shared action – thus enabling more effective sustainability education and engagement grounded in a transformative, participatory learning process developed by the Northwest Earth Institute, a non-profit organization offering a series of discussion-based course books as well as a complementary online action EcoChallenge platform for educators, sustainability officers, students and higher education staff alike.
Webinar participants will identify new tools that address connections between transformative learning and behavior change and will learn how to implement any NWEI program on their campus or in the classroom.
