Environmental Literacy, Global Competence & Design Thinking for Civic Action
Our year-long program begins with a 3-5 day summer institute that 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 civic action projects in the Spring.
For more information about the program, please check the FAQ section, contact your CISP Regional Director, or contact the CISP Program Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org).
