We promoted sustainability through teaching weekly, interactive lessons to local elementary school students.


In the spring of 2012, United Church of Christ pastor Stephanie Hasenbrink came to an Idea Fund general meeting to ask about sustainability lessons at her church’s Sunday school. After help from the project consulting and community outreach teams, Idea Fund members Madison Beehler, Julie Fields, and Kaitlin Soriano worked with the church members and Lindsey Lyons of the Center for Sustainability Education to develop and successfully teach a month’s worth of sustainability lessons for fourth graders.
