Curriculum Guide

The EcoActUs eWorkbook contains a wide variety of materials. Some will be interested in all the material, but most want a guided set of materials. Use the Guide pertaining to your interest area in order to narrow the content. Of course, if you find another area of interest, follow that interest trail. Your goal should be to explore and inform yourself in those areas that make the most sense.

Building Guide

Follow the general guide below for those interested in sustainability options in the Built Environment Sector.

4 Strategies that Work…

Review the Overview and Big Opportunities

5 Built Environment

Spend time on this Track. Read the Overview and Big Opportunities. Explore the Readings and Media. If you have time, check out Music, Art, and Film. Click on Start Unit Lecture; this is probably one you’ll want to listen from start to end.

6 Challenging the Status Quo

Depending on your local circumstances you may want to review this session to help create a plan for moving your organization forward. The Big Opportunities highlight areas that are common blockades in many organizations. If any of these ring true, you may want to listen to this lecture.

7 Road to Change

Like the last session, at least look over the Overview and Big Opportunities. Depending on local circumstances, listen to the lecture.

8 Building Support

If you’re working with more than 2 people, you may need to build support for a specific plan. Check out the Overview and Big Opportunities and if it seems to make sense, listen to the lecture.

9 Quiz

Take the Quiz at the end of each session you spend time with; if you’re not sure of the answers and feel you should, review that session. Your goal is to learn what you need and want, to become a more effective sustainability leader!
