The Why and the Way…
Monday night’s celebration of the 25th anniversary of Northwest Earth Institute’s impact through their discussion course books and EcoChallenges drew an inspired crowd of founders, board members, staff, and loyal fans of their transformative work that offers both the why and the way toward a sustainable future. Big congrats to NWEI ED and GPSEN Treasurer David Macek.
GPSEN also launched our Call for Proposals for our upcoming Sustainability Symposium, to be held on Friday, March 8, at PCC Cascade. Be sure to Save the Date and spread the word that the Call for Proposals is now open. It is such a great opportunity to share cutting-edge research and initiatives in our region!
In case you missed Kim Smith’s webinar on UNESCO’s next steps to advance education for sustainable development, the recording is now available. Note that the UNESCO draft is open for public comment through November 19.
Plus, last newsletter, we celebrated the good work of GPSEN Fellow and Board Member Frank Granshaw. Next up, we introduce you to Fellow Zahra Golshani. These academic leaders in our community engage in transformative change and hands-on programs. If you are inspired by their work, consider finding your own ways to Get Involved. We look forward to sharing your stories in the future, so feel free to recommend other people and organizations to highlight.
Your GPSEN Team
