PHENND K-16 Summer Institute Call for Proposals
Each year, PHENND’s K-16 Partnerships Network hosts a day long convening about university, school, and community partnerships. This year’s theme will be “Education for Sustainability.” The institute will be a day of planning, reflection, and sharing of information.

This year we are partnering with the Office of Environmental Management & Services at the School District of Philadelphia. Under this office, the District developed GreenFutures (, a five-year sustainability plan that was created by District staff and stakeholders with a common goal: to make public schools great and green. This plan is in support of Action Plan v3.0 and it aims to make every school a green school that will better serve our students and communities. GreenFutures is made up of five sections: Education for Sustainability (EfS), Consumption & Waste, Energy & Efficiencies, School Greenscapes and Healthy Schools, Healthy Living.

Education for Sustainability (EfS) is a holistic framework to equip students, schools, administrators, families and the community with the skills, knowledge and habits of mind that will prepare them to create and contribute to a world where economic prosperity, social justice and responsible citizenship may be strengthened while restoring our health and that of the living systems upon which our lives depend.

Applications due by April 1, 2019. The Summer Institute will be held on May 31 at the School District of Philadelphia.
