Education Activities

Educational activities focused on sustainability at each of the AGS institutions have increased since the inception of the AGS. Part of the AGS mission is to serve the partner institutions as each university develops its own research and teaching program in the areas of the environment and sustainability. Education and outreach activities of the AGS have contributed to the partner institutions’ programs in a number of ways, including participation of students at the Annual and Technical Meetings, establishing local chapters of the World Student Community for Sustainable Development, and the increasing number of students and alumni who have participated in the Youth Encounter on Sustainability (YES). Joint educational activities undertaken by AGS member institutiosn include YES and the Delivering Research Results project.

AGS institutions are also actively reviewing the state of sustainability education around the globe. The 2004 Interim Report describes current models in sustainability education at institutions of higher education. The report can be found on the Education Reports page.
