The OSC will provide or support education to students and the general public through dissemination of materials, articles, books, lectures, field days, demonstrations, websites, or through other typical educational means. We expect education may include, but need not be restricted to, educating or helping cause to be educated public, diverse, and/or underserved audiences about principles, techniques and technologies to create and maintain sustainable communities as regards sustainable water, energy, food, species, and environmental goods and services. Education may involve OSC staff educators, educators from local schools or universities, or OSC volunteers in helping form or deliver educational messages. The OSC may support education about community sustainability by other organizations and may partner in educational efforts with educational institutions such as local schools, colleges and universities. The OSC may provide input to community groups in general or specifically for proposed projects or community initiatives.
