HundrED Partners with MUSE School to Discover Ten of the Brightest Sustainability Innovations in K12 Education
Call for applications is open through May 31st; selected innovations will be announced at the Sustainability Summit in November 2018 and will be promoted globally
Los Angeles, CA — Finnish education non-profit, HundrED and MUSE School, a sustainability driven, private school located in Calabasas, Los Angeles have launched a global initiative to discover ten, scalable K12 education innovations that have potential to increase sustainability in schools, across the globe. The initiative was launched today at SXSWEdu in Austin.
HundrED Spotlights are in-depth collections of ten innovations that focus on a location or theme in education. With a world population of 7 billion people and limited natural resources, it is imperative that individuals and societies learn to live together sustainably. The HundrED Spotlight on Sustainability will address the need for education as a central role in the process.
“Teaching, applying and advocating sustainability in schools is crucial to the future of our children’s lives as well as the future of our planet,” comments Suzy Amis Cameron, Co-Founder of MUSE School. “We are thrilled to partner with HundrED who shares in our mission to support and share education innovations that will teach our youth how to be healthier and to live in a more environmentally friendly world.”
The HundrED Spotlight On Sustainability is looking for impactful and scalable innovations that have a proven track record and potential to work all over the world. The innovations can be either pedagogical or improving sustainability in a school or district level. Innovation can be for profit or non-profit, innovations of any size, analog or digital.
Innovators that meet the criteria can submit their innovation by May 31, 2018. An advisory panel will help make the selection of the final ten innovations. The chosen projects will be announced in November 2018 at the Sustainability Summit in Calabasas. All of the selected innovations will be featured in the Sustainability in Education Report and will be promoted all over the world. There will also be an introduction video made of all the selected innovations.
”The world is full of amazing education innovations that have potential to make change happen in all continents. Unfortunately they seldom get the visibility they deserve and struggle to spread,” said Saku Tuominen, Founder of HundrED. “Our mission is to change this. We are thrilled to partner with MUSE School to discover and share some of the brightest, education innovations addressing sustainability and to help them flourish and scale nationally and even globally.”
