      Education for Sustainability (EFS) is an approach to learning rooted in holistic thinking, integration, and community engagement. Born from the environmental education movement, EFS takes a more expansive perspective on education, and builds the environment and social equity into its framework, offering support to students in understanding that the world is interconnected, and believing that individuals have the ability to make a difference. Join EFS leaders from Shelburne Farms' Sustainable Schools Project for an interactive, in-depth conversation on how the big ideas and promising practices of EFS can support your work with students.
