We have heard the terms “Going Green” and “Sustainability,” but what does that really mean? What is the connection between sustainability - the environment, the society, and the economy? How do we encourage students or what needs to be done to develop a Movement of Sustainability and the Next Generation of Innovators?
In my district, The Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders has started this movement in a project entitled Project Ventura (http://projectventura.com/) A team/class of young women worked together to complete an innovative project and solve a need or a problem at their campus. The team worked together to solve a large-scale, real-world project in which they restored a 1977 Airstream travel trailer into an eco-trailer for the faculty.
How are you supporting projects like Ann Richards School? How do these projects connect classrooms to the real world and make learning relevant for students? Do you see this movement toward integrated innovation happening in your community, district, state, country? What are some examples of students becoming innovators to participate in sustainable practices?
