JOIN US AT THE 2019
Place-Based Education Conference:
Building Strong and Transformative Communities TOGETHER
November 7-9, 2019
The Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative invites you to join us for the 7th Place-Based Education Conference. Come experience a three-day conference designed to inspire and support a community of educators around the power of place-based learning.
Place-based education transforms how teachers teach and how students learn by expanding classrooms to include a community’s organizations, history, and natural features. Investing in place helps youth engage in meaningful learning and civic life, provides vital support for teachers, and strengthens communities.
Who should attend?
This national conference is for K-12 educators and students, university faculty and students, non-formal educators, natural resource professionals, staff of community organizations, business leaders, policy makers, and funders.
“I came all the way from Wyoming for this conference and it did not disappoint! It was a wonderful opportunity to learn about inspiring work and meet and share ideas with educators who really understand place-based education. The keynote and lens on equity were really thought-provoking and have impacted my own educational practice and research.”Kevin Krasnow, Ph.D. Graduate and Research Faculty
