The Lincoln Center was invited to participate in the Sustainability Teachers Academy offered by the Global Institute of Sustainability. We developed and facilitated a small portion of the conference focused on perspectives. Teachers from around the country were exposed to the Moral Foundations of Sustainability.
K-12 teachers learned about the various moral foundations all people have. They explored their own moral foundations and discussed how they apply to their drive to make a difference in their home school districts. Participants in the program are charged with developing meaningful programming after the conference, the Lincoln Center was able to provide insight into the moral and ethical framework of sustainability.
Professional Development, Sustainability program development
Teachers who participated in the moral foundations of sustainability are equipped to have difficult conversations with students, administrators, and community members who have differing perspectives. They recognize and understand the value in different ideas or opinions, understand how they are formed, and they are willing to work with all individuals and groups to solve difficult challenges.
The moral foundations of sustainability helped teachers from around country contemplate how best to work with their students on sustainability initiatives.
