The Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative invites you to join us for the 7th Place-Based Education Conference. Come experience a three-day conference 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.
