One Million Educators for Sustainable Systemic Change
In alignment with the 2030 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, Compass Education aims to empower ONE MILLION educators with the tools to encourage students as sustainability advocates and systems thinkers.
Sustainability is the foundation of our future
We cannot solve the challenges of today with the solutions of yesterday. We must empower teachers and students to become changemakers that value and honor the interconnectedness of our way of life and life on this planet.
We believe that when students learn to approach complex topics, discuss current events or design service projects using the tools of systems thinking, they learn skills for life that accompany them as they raise families, start businesses and continue contributing positively and thoughtfully to the world.
“It is not education that will save us, but education of a certain kind”
– David Orr
