Center for Ecoliteracy

Grace Church School joined in sharing its environmental goals with a group of schools online at The Center for Ecoliteracy.  Teachers and students share their work in developing a sustainable community at this site.  Many resources are available here, including seminars, curricula and more.

“The Center for Ecoliteracy supports and advances education for sustainable living.  We believe that schools play a pivotal role in moving us beyond our growing environmental crises and toward a sustainable society. We recognize schooling for sustainability as a process that fosters abundant living on a finite planet and makes teaching and learning come alive.

We bring a passion to our work that stems from our conviction that the best hope for learning to live sustainably lies in schooling that returns to the real basics: engaging with the natural world; understanding how nature sustains life; nurturing healthy communities; exploring the consequences of how we feed and provision ourselves; caring about the places where we live and the people and creatures in them.  We are inspired by the growing movement of educators, parents, and community members who embrace this vision.”
