Responsible Citizenship
“Our students’ future will require them to understand the complexities of sustaining the world around them.” Clare Sisisky,
Director of Responsible Citizenship Initiative and Director of Strategic Planning
Collegiate aspires to instill responsible citizenship through sustainability, valuing and understanding the interconnectedness of human and natural systems and taking action so that they may thrive. The Four Guiding Principles of the Center for Ecoliteracy’s “Smart by Nature” framework provide structure for how educators can approach education for sustainability: Nature is our teacher; Sustainability is a community practice; The real world is the optimal learning environment; Sustainable living is rooted in a deep knowledge of place.
