Our proposal will focus on facilitating the development of regional pathways that link opportunities to learn geoscience together with opportunities to use that learning in the local community at multiple points in students educational progress (e.g. elementary, middle, high, college). These pathways can make use of formal or informal educational opportunities or both and should lead to local employment opportunities. We will facilitate the ability of regional groups to draw on the programs and expertise of national partners to strengthen existing educational opportunities and link them into a pathway. In addition to strategies that will support the regional groups in establishing a pathway vision and collaborating with the program partners, we will establish a community of practice that will help us all learn from each other and become a force for global sustainability and resilience.
