This resource will get students started as they design and execute projects that make the world more sustainable. A rubric for assessing the quality of proposals is included.
There is evidence that people agree that we need to live more sustainably but don’t always act in a way that leads to sustainability of the earth’s natural and human systems. This project is an opportunity for us to learn about the importance of sustainability and to act as agents of change. We need you to create a project that increases the economic, social and environmental sustainability of the world and at the same time give you an opportunity to learn deeply.
Design, execute and report the results of a project that addresses the need for sustainable decision-making and action within our communities. We need to start with the end in mind and work backwards.
I can take action that leads to a measurable improvement in the sustainability of the earth.
I can work collaboratively with my peers to develop, plan and execute a project.
I can document the value of my project to my education and the world.
