Through research and outreach that inspire action, the Worldwatch Institute works to accelerate the transition to a sustainable world that meets human needs. The Institute's top objectives are universal access to renewable energy and nutritious food, expansion of environmentally sound jobs and development, transformation of cultures from consumerism to sustainability, and an early end to population growth through healthy and intentional childbearing. Recent editions of Worldwatch's landmark publication, State of the World, include Can a City Be Sustainable? (2016); Confronting Hidden Threats to Sustainability (2015); and Governing for Sustainability (2013).
"Perilous times call for smart, hopeful, and vital education, grounded in deep understanding of how the world works and our place in it. EarthEd is a reason to take heart, reminding us that we can learn from educators around the world who are drawing from traditional wisdom, new discoveries about learning, and innovative strategies to prepare and inspire students to become effective actors in our changing world."--Zenobia Barlow, Cofounder and Executive Director of the Center for Ecoliteracy
