The OVERBook Project on the Environment and Sustainability is an interdisciplinary professional learning opportunity which aims to deepen educators’ understanding of contemporary global environmental and sustainability issues and resources for teaching about these issues. The program culminates in the creation of study guides with educator resources created by World View Fellows in connection with photos featured in the Population Institute’s OVERBook. We look forward to meeting the 12 Fellows in Chapel Hill in July for the opening workshop.

World View received numerous applications, making the decision a very difficult one. We appreciate the interest, efforts and commitment to global education of all the applicants and encourage educators from World View partner institutions to apply for the 2019 World View Fellows program, to be announced during the 2018-2019 academic year.
