• In collaboration with Brookhaven National Lab, CGTC provides an annual workshop on Open Space Stewardship for educators.  Teachers are encouraged to construct science projects that foster students’ stewardship of their local environment into their existing curriculum while meeting local and national standards.

  • CGTC also holds a Policy Forum for community leaders.  The forum highlights public policy energy issues that affect communities’ sustainability and livability. It also addresses a range of important local, state, and federal issues such as green buildings, infrastructure, land use, water conservation, and small business regulation. The goal is to offer expertise available from CGTC and its partners to deal with these policy matters.

  • As follow-up to the workshop “Sustainable Energy for Teachers in the Caribbean” held earlier this year, the Caribbean Green Technology Center (CGTC) at the University of the Virgin Islands will facilitate a two day workshop held at the Research Building on St.Croix for public school teachers from middle and high schools. Following the training, all educators are given wind energy kits to enhance classroom instruction on wind and solar energy.  These hands-on activities will serve to “bring home” the message of alternative energy sources to students while keeping them motivated and interested in the classroom.
