Student Sustainability Lab

The Student Sustainability Lab is SustainaFest’s groundbreaking educational program launched in 2014. The program provides students an opportunity to understand human-environment interactions, sustainable living and our connectedness with ecosystems, economic systems, and one another. The Lab connects and complements traditional Pre K-12 educational disciplines by combining art, humanities, social sciences, and the physical and life sciences to encourage students to explore their environment, society and the economy through the lens of sustainability in the modern world.
