A while ago, I had a surreal opportunity to speak at TEDxYouth@AvonRiver about what transformed my passion for the environment into P.S. Our Beaches.
This idea, Project Based Learning, is what I believe to be the heart of sustainable education and, thus, the heart of sustainability. I believe that the next generation, and even this generation, of dreamers, thinkers and global citizens should have access to the experiences, appreciation and deeper understanding that PBL gave me. Through these means, our generation and the next can find, solve and act on the biggest issues which emerge as local and global threats in 2018 and beyond.
Huge thanks to the incredible team at TEDx Youth Avon River for doing such a wonderful job of inspiring us and putting the event all together. I feel so lucky to have been there and to have met a host of incredible people committed to doing incredible things. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2019!
