GREEN AMBASSADORS INSTITUTE PRESENTS : POLICY FOR THE PEOPLE
How can K-12 teachers and students engage in local environmental policy in this time of national upheaval?
National politics got you down? We have good news. Real policy change is happening at the local level. Join us for concrete examples of statewide, county and city initiatives related to climate change, clean energy and water quality. Leave with inspiration, information and tools to help you and your students engage in meaningful, local policy change.
The Green Ambassadors Institute — the learning lab and professional development incubator of Environmental Charter Schools — invites K-12 educators, university partners, community leaders and policymakers to the first of three daylong summits that explore best practices in environmental education, service learning and urban sustainability.
Experience our living campuses, engage in collaborative curriculum planning, explore relevant environmental issues across Los Angeles and walk away with partnerships and tools to take back to your colleagues! Through collaborative workshops, curriculum and hands-on field trips, educators and community leaders from across Southern California will get support throughout the year to co-create youth-led environmental sustainability solutions.
