3rd Annual Sustainability Education Summit
February 28th, 2020
The third annual Sustainability Education Summit is an online and in-person event that shares tools and stories on teaching sustainability.
Participants will have the chance to participate online and in-person, and will go home with an understanding of common struggles, tools, and successes in teaching sustainability topics.
This year we are focusing on growing sustainability education. The summit will feature University of Minnesota educators who share how they root in sustainability, tools for teaching and persevering, and a harvest of student successes. They come from fields of international development, media libraries, Veterinary Medicine, and campus sustainability.

Looking back – Sustainability Education Summit 2019
The Sustainability Education Summit 2019 brought together faculty, students, staff, and people interested in sustainability education from across the University of Minnesota system and online from over 20 different states and 3 countries! It featured presentations from Institute on the Environment Educators on how to teach sustainability in chemistry, engineering, art & science, sustainable life seminars, and through story-telling. The UMN Morris, Duluth, Crookston, and Twin Cities campuses also presented videos displaying how they teach sustainability through place-based education, sustainable infrastructure, and action.
