In April 2017, Prescott College and the Ph.D. Program in Sustainability Education will host its ninth annual Sustainability Education Symposium, focused on sustainability and its connection with education throughout society.  The theme for this year’s symposium is Honoring Tradition and Transforming Communication: Envisioning the Next Fifty Years. We plan to weave the themed presentations and workshops of the symposium together with music, poetry, art, movement, and meditation.  Each track of Ph.D. presentations and workshops will be surrounded by a creative "web" of activities to engage and sustain our participants throughout the event. Musicians and creative performers from inside and outside our program will participate in the symposium, creating an engaging experience for participants, and moving toward a more inclusive, collaborative, creative identity.
