Overview of Course: The Sustainability Learning Community will provide Sustainability Champions with networking opportunities, partner resources, and support and guidance for sustainability. Each session will have a different focus theme, a short presentation by a DCSD Sustainability Partner and both structured and unstructured group work time. Groups will be formed by initiatives such as school gardens, outdoor learning, recycling, innovation, chicken coops, conservation and more (as defined by attendees). Locations will vary each session to provide opportunities to see sustainability initiatives in action!
