Sustainable Learning NY
Under the name Sustainable Summer, we operate summer adventure travel programs with a curricular focus on environmental issues, such as agriculture or energy, for teen student groups. Our programs facilitate first-hand examination of both sustainable and unsustainable practices in these topic areas through experiential, participatory learning. We root this practical exploration of sustainability within theoretical discussions of the broader economic, political, and ecological contexts. We do this by merging our expertise in teen travel programs and environmental education with the resources and expertise of like-minded organizations, and by choosing program destinations that possess dynamic opportunities for the teaching of sustainability.
