INSPIRING THE NEXT GENERATION OF
ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDS

Our approach to Environmental Science Education at IslandWood

OUR APPROACH

Through place-based, culturally responsive, experiential environmental science education, we take urgent issues and make them relevant to young people, shedding light on the power we all have to change the world for good. This approach prepares the next generation of inspired environmental problem solvers to work together to make an exponential impact on the planet, now and in the future.

OUR COMMITMENT TO JUSTICE, EQUITY, DIVERSITY, AND INCLUSIVITY (JEDI)

At IslandWood, we are focused on building a race equity culture. We are focusing on race equity, not because we believe other inequities don’t exist or aren’t vitally important, but because in the United States one’s race – more than any other factor – is the biggest determinant of educational outcomes, wealth, health, exposure to environmental pollutants and hazards, and life expectancy.

 

We understand there is an inextricable connection between educational justice, environmental justice, and racial equity. This work is not ancillary, or “outside” of IslandWood’s mission. It is central to our work in environmental education, and of inspiring healthy communities and a healthy planet.
