Place-Based Education Conference

November 9, 2023 - November 11, 2023

The Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative’s Place-Based Education Conference is a three-day event designed to inspire and support a community of educators around the power of place-based learning. Place-based education transforms how teachers teach and how students learn by expanding classrooms to include a community’s organizations, history, and natural features. Investing in place helps youth engage in meaningful learning and civic life, provides vital support for teachers, and strengthens communities. This national conference is for K-12 educators and students, university faculty and students, non-formal educators, natural resource professionals, staff of community organizations, business leaders, policy makers, and funders.
