In an effort to explore more about education & sustainability, I talked with Tom Twist, Sustainability Officer for The Chewonki Foundation in Maine. Tom shares his ideas and experiences with taking sustainability into the classroom… or better yet – Taking students out of the classroom to “experience” sustainability and it’s challenges.

If you get a chance, check out Chewonki’s website where you can listen to some podcast episodes that Tom developed with some students. They are amazing
