'We will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand, and we will understand only what we are taught' Baba Dioum For me, this quote sums up what I am trying to accomplish. I believe that educators and the education industry have a wonderful opportunity to improve education for sustainability and at the same time set our students up better for the future of work with those sought after 21st-century skills.
