CERF: Pioneering Global Transformation

At the heart of CERF is the vision of a transformative movement, one that extends beyond individual workshops to a global scale of conscious collaboration. Our mission is to not only serve the global community equitably and alleviate environmental distress but to also replicate this model of workshops worldwide. We aim to inspire and facilitate a profound re-education and reorientation across all levels of society—individuals, cultures, and nations—towards sustainability.

Our workshops are designed as dynamic blueprints for global replication, embodying a revolutionary shift towards cooperative engagement and collective wisdom. By harnessing diverse human capabilities in an environment of efficient and harmonious collaboration, CERF sets the stage for a positive and impactful transformation. This approach is crucial for empowering every community, enabling nations to undergo a transformation that is both beneficial and wholesome. Without this shift towards collaborative action, we risk perpetuating the current, unsustainable paradigms. CERF stands at the forefront of this change, spearheading a new era of global workshop models that promise to bring about a resilient, harmonized, and sustainable future.

Mapping Environmental Education to Global Sustainability

The WSS EmpowerED workshop program series is for a world facing catastrophic climate events, technological disruptions and the displacement of millions from traditional jobs. In these workshops, we address the urgent needs of students, universities, marginalized communities and ecosystems to help ensure future generations can maintain a sustainable future.

Our aim is to create a forum of heightened ecological literacy where educational experts, youth and organizations meet to establish an interdisciplinary network with the aim to rapidly and completely transform education to empower and serve future generations and the planet.

Since launching the Youth Climate Summit on September 23, 2023, the WSS EmpowerED Program is providing a model for the rapid transformation of environmental education.

The Urgent Need for Environmental Education in Colleges & Universities and the Challenges are Facing:

  • AI proliferation threatens the collapse of universities
  • Universities lack the means to scale environmental science education globally
  • Currently there is no free education on a global scale, thus perpetuating societal and environmental inequalities
  • A globally synchronized curriculum does not exist, preventing individuals and organizations from learning about a sustainable future
  • No clear path to the empowerment of women, youth and underrepresented groups currently exists
  • Educational institutions can sometimes operate in isolation from their communities and real-world issues. Without active collaboration and local engagement, practices for sustainable living may not be effectively implemented or scaled



Let's Accelerate Ecological Literacy and Reverse the Effects of the Climate Crisis. Join us at the next Youth Summit to help build a sustainable future for all.
