On September 19, Strategic Energy Innovations and the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) will be hosting a one-hour teacher training webinar to support teachers in implementing both the SEI and Education and Environment Initiative (EEI) curriculums in their classrooms. Educators will receive training from fellow teachers on how to use these curricula to engage students in sustainability education projects.
