This workshop is an opportunity for thought leaders to come together and identify high-priority and exciting ideas for moving forward from the foundation built by InTeGrate Project to strengthen Earth education. Bringing together those from within and outside of the geoscience education community, including those focused on teaching, research, and outreach, the workshop is designed to inspire diverse ideas for future work and provide a venue for new and diverse groups to envision and share ideas for new approaches and directions to address issues of sustainability through learning about the Earth.
