Education is the foundation of One Island’s work – changing our behavior to better match our values is one of the greatest challenges in the sustainability movement. How DO we walk our talk? How do we navigate the sea of change?
One way is to learn together and find practices that work for us, every day. Learning circles allow us the important opportunnity to share in our struggles and our accomplishments. Neighbor to neighbor, there is a potential leader in every chair in the community learning circle and during our classroom-without-walls programs.
