More Info

Re-imagine your campus as a laboratory for applied sustainability education! Join EcoRise and fellow New Orleans teachers in a day of learning and collaboration to empower your students to solve sustainability challenges on your campus through scientific inquiry, eco-audits, and the use of grant funds for green campus projects. Using EcoRise's Sustainable Intelligence and Design Studio curricula, we'll collect data and tackle an environmentally-themed design challenge. We'll also explore exemplary student projects that have been funded by EcoRise's Student Innovation Fund, complete a mock grant application, and network with experienced teachers to create an action plan that you can take back to your classroom and implement right away. This workshop is for current K-12 teachers. New and experienced EcoRise teachers from all content areas are welcome! The first ten educators to register (and attend the training) will recieve a $100 gift card courtesy of Target. Please be sure to bring a laptop. EcoRise teachers in Louisiana have access to the Sustainable Intelligence Program through the generous support of the EPA Region 6. Get started today:
