Inspiring and Informative

Sustainability is one of those values I've always paid lip service to, but it seemed too big a mission with too long a time horizon to be very personal to me. Dan Short, an American who teaches in Australia, has changed that with his passion for the topic and his experience working with students and school leaders to pursue it in meaningful ways.

Dan mainly shares his own thoughts on the podcast, but he has also done a couple of strong interviewers with others working on sustainability in schools. He is a natural interviewer, because he listens well and gives his guests plenty of time to share their insights.

I have gotten more serious separately out the recyclable items in our home because of this podcast. I'm ready to learn more!
