Learning for a Sustainable Future 

Making Authentic Inquiry Work: 
A Winter Institute for Educators

Learning for a Sustainable Future and Natural Curiosity are again partnering to facilitate this very popular 2 -day PD experience.

“Learning for a Sustainable Future is one of the most reputable organizations with whom I have ever worked. Their workshop facilitators are well-trained and knowledgeable and their material is a perfect balance of pedagogy with practical applications for the classroom I have attended their sessions so I speak from experience. ”
