Environment & the Economy

During these four-day, residential programs, teachers learn how to use economic principles to analyze environmental issues. Participants learn how a rational, economic approach to the environment helps students understand the complexity of these issues. Lesson plans are demonstrated and discussed in order to build confidence in their effectiveness. Outstanding instructors lead intellectually stimulating sessions, and each program includes a field trip to an environmentally challenging site. Come find out how economic analysis can help clean up the environment.
