This webinar will engage attendees on three essential elements of intersectionality in Sustainability Education: citizenship and sustainable development, character development in young learners, and the future of a sustainable society. We will discuss and ideate relative to an established character-based learning model for secondary school and undergraduate application, assessment of learning tools for this model, and context related to ecosystems vibrancy, citizenship and leadership, and finding one’s calling in the work world. Attendees will come away with practical techniques for applying these modalities in their own institutes of learning and applied research.
