Experiential Educational programs aim to develop a citizenry that is concerned and informed about environmental and social justice issues, and that has the knowledge, attitude, motivations, commitment and skills to work both collectively and as individuals towards solving current problems and preventing new ones.
ESG has conducted Experiential Workshops aimed at helping teachers understand some of the major environmental and social issues of our times and develop teaching methods and techniques to address them. The broad methodological approach to learning in these workshops is through lectures from leading experts, participant presentations, field visits and case studies relating to issues of concern.
