We want to encourage and help teachers to find and share effective ways to integrate climate and sustainability concepts in their classrooms—in ways that will enrich and enhance the classes and help meet learning goals. Sustainability concepts are inherently complex and well-served by interdisciplinary approaches, so we welcome ideas on how that could work in every subject, at every grade level.


We are located in the Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania, an area that is part of the territory of the Lenni-Lenapé. Their relationship with settlers was apparently rather friendly and accommodating, but the setters gradually displaced them from their territory—sometimes with armed force, sometimes by trickery or deception.
