Professional Learning Overview
The Children’s Environmental Literacy Foundation was founded in 2003 on the principle that education for sustainability is essential for today’s K-12 students. Education for sustainability is a teaching methodology that develops critical thinking skills necessary to understand complex, interconnected issues. Students today face unprecedented challenges and an imperative to balance economic, social and environmental problems. They need to feel inspired and be prepared to innovate new solutions. CELF programs use real-world problem solving to prepare students with the holistic thinking skills and motivation to become agents of change for a healthier, more stable and sustainable future.

CELF Civic Science Inquiry to Action
Program Description
CELF Civic Science: Inquiry to Action is a semester- or year-long program that engages educators and students in project-based STEAM learning outside of the classroom. Tailored to each school and community location, we offer professional learning workshops for teachers paired with on-site support to implement a project-based learning module that connects students to real-world challenges in their own neighborhoods. The program combines the development of 21st century skills with the motivation and creativity generated by solving a problem in one’s own community. During the 2020-2021 school year, CELF will be offering Civic Science Inquiry to Action in various configurations to educators across the country.
