North of Sixty honored with SNAP Award from Journal of Sustainability Education
Very honored that the North of Sixty
project is the winner of a Journal of Sustainability Education
SNAP Award. The Sustainability Now (SNAP) awards recognize effective and innovative sustainability education initiatives worldwide that work to restore landscapes, recharge educators, and replenish learning systems. North of Sixty is sustainability-driven initiative focused on traditional knowledge and climate change throughout the circumpolar Arctic. The mission of North of Sixty° is to collaborate with schools to create a global tapestry of video stories that weave together both an ecological and cultural narrative of the Arctic. In the process, we encourage students to become aware of, and actively seek solutions to, sustainability issues related to the natural environment, culture, and language in their community.
