Environmental Education - Citizens of Earth with Katie Isaak Ginsberg
Play • 51 min
Katie Isaak Ginsberg is a parent and advocate for environmental literacy, which led her to found the Children’s Environmental Literacy Foundation(CELF), where she serves as the Executive Director and Chair Emeritus. She saw the need to educate students about the links between human health, poverty, consumption, conflict and the environment. After extensive research, she combined her background in design, management marketing, and business development to create a foundation that brings the best practices in sustainability education to K-12 educators and schools. Ms. Ginsberg speaks and provides seminars and conferences on sustainability and re-orienting education through place-based and project-based education, and, as part of her work, was a featured presenter at the 2013 Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting.

Ms. Ginsberg shares her reasons for founding CELF in 2003, and how that work has influenced policy and curriculum in the schools and districts. She shares case studies and the importance of communities working together to really help focus on environmental sustainability. Her foundation's work with schools is designed to support teachers where they are, using their own curriculum and standards, but changing the lens to focus on how you can incorporate sustainability concepts into what is already being taught.
