Initiating Whole School Sustainability

How does involvement in a four-campus collaboration affect school leaders’ knowledge and understanding of whole school approaches to sustainability and enhance opportunities for student learning?

I have led three CIM projects in the past few years, and have recently completed a Masters of Science degree in Ecological Literacy.  Each of my previous projects has helped build the capacity of Cobham teachers to use outdoor environments in teaching and learning.  Now, my students need me to help build the capacity of school leaders to address sustainability in their professional practice in ways that provide opportunities for authentic student engagement and leadership.  Chris Hupp, Project Leader, ACS Cobham International School
