SUSTAINABILITY: Balancing environmental, social, and economic/financial priorities in equal regard in decision-making and development; valuing longevity/durability, resilience to change, adaptability, renewability, and/or self-sufficiency in simultaneously environmental, social, and economic terms.
– K-State Committee for Sustainability
This website has been created as a repository for sustainability and environmental education resources for educators, reinforcing the vision of the College of Education to prepare educators to be knowledgeable, ethical, caring decision makers.
We would like to hear any ideas that you might have pertaining to sustainability in education: lesson plans, books, articles, resource links, recycling hints, people who are making a difference, classroom activities, or environmental education programs or events. Help us make this a valuable resource! Contact Dru Clarke or Mary Hammel.
