Environmental Literacy ~ Global Competence ~ Design Thinking ~ Active Citizenship
Our 5-day summer institute creates space for learning, planning, and collaboration with CISP teacher leaders, university faculty, sustainability professionals, and community leaders. Teachers may participate in follow-up field studies, webinars, and coaching sessions during the school year. The program culminates with a student showcase of their action projects in the Spring.
For more information about the program, please check the FAQ section, contact your regional CISP Site Director, or contact the CISP Program Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Prerequisites for Program Participants:
1. A minimum of 1 year teaching experience in the school you will return to in the Fall of 2018.

3. Motivation and availability to dedicate the time needed for ongoing transformative professional learning, including self-reflection and communication that goes beyond the walls of your classroom.
