Place-Based Education Conference
November 7, 2019 - November 9, 2019
Building Strong and Transformative Communities Together
The Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative invites you to the 7th Place-Based Education Conference, held this year in Flint, Michigan.
Place-based education transforms how teachers teach and how students learn by expanding classrooms to include local 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.
Three Days of Inspiration and Community
This national conference engages place-based education experts and practitioners who are committed to transforming teaching and learning to provide meaningful opportunities for young people to protect the environment and enhance their communities.
