Thanks Lucy for checking in!
This short presentation will likely cover a number of the recommended items from the teachers and student strands, including:
As to the mission -- yes, all three of us are aligned with programs that are global and solve real world problems. These are the programs we are talking about. Ride To Learn, as we spoke about last year which Alam has worked to establish in rural Pakistan and Ian's working on some new student-led programs. I've added the Solution Focused (Humane) aspect, because I think it is important to empower action through this approach and many educators have found this helpful when I share some of the tools and perspective.
Let me know if that clears things up and if you have any other questions.

Using principles of sustainability through place-based, challenge-based, and inquiry-based learning allow us to employ interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary, and non-disciplinary techniques which can be adapted by K-12/Primary school to institutes of higher education and informal educators alike.
These methods address a crucial step in developing local and global awareness, and when utilized in appropriate context, aid learners to navigate and resolving complex interconnecting challenges of social, economic, and environmental sustainability.
