Free Zero Waste teacher training in LA and San Diego, 7/25-8/3, 2006
Apologies for Cross-Postings
Gunter Pauli will be in San Diego and Los Angeles from July 25th to Aug
3rd before coming to address the CRRA Conference on Aug 8, 2006. He
is conducting workshops on the ZERI Educational Initiative highlighting
over 1000 scientific and natural systems design principles to help
achieve zero air, water and land emissions (see
workshops are fully funded, so there is no cost for attendance or meals
provided while at the workshop.
The training will be held at the following four schools:
The workshops are being offered on a first come, first served basis,
and open primarily to teachers, but anyone working at any level in
education is welcome, including school administrators. At each of
the four school workshops, there will be
- High Tech High, San Diego
- Gillispie School, La Jolla
- Marlborough School, Los Angeles
- Turning Point, Culver City
an evening lecture open to the larger community as well. Although
the four school locations are private schools, that does not preclude
public school teachers from attending.
There are 140 spaces available for teachers to get a good overview of
ZERI principles, with 35 spaces available at each venue.
Please help get the word out to educators in your area about this
valuable training that can help them teach their students how to work
towards Zero Waste!
PRESENTING A SUMMER TEACHERS? WORKSHOP
Gunter Pauli, who will share the ZERI principles in this workshop, was
one of the keynote speakers in March 2005 at the launch of the United
Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development. He is the
originator of ZERI (Zero Emissions Research and Initiatives) and of the
ZERI Educational Initiative, which has been used in schools in Japan,
Sweden, Germany, Colombia, Ecuador, Brazil, United Kingdom, Colorado, New
Mexico and New York.
SUSTAINABILITY ? THE CHALLENGE OF THE
Led by Gunter Pauli
is a global network of creative minds seeking solutions to world
challenges. The common vision shared by the members of ZERI is to
view waste as a resource and seek solutions using nature?s design
principles as inspiration. ZERI projects and educational concepts
arise from new integrations of science, technology, enterprise and
education. ZERI works with individuals, institutions, corporations
and governments, and there are over 50 major ZERI projects throughout the
world. ZERI education concepts complement; they do not replace the
principles of established programs and can be integrated into K-12
classes. Sustainability cuts across many disciplines, so all interested
educators are welcome to come.
