Editor’s Note 2021

“All sustainable development goals come down to education.”—Malala Yousafzai (2016)

In a world with limited resources and unlimited ingenuity, schools like Harley have a vital role in preparing students to meet present (and future) sustainability challenges. Sustainability offers a framework for asking enduring philosophical questions, such as: How do we create a better world? What is our responsibility to others? Thinking and teaching about sustainability is integrative and multidisciplinary—and the learning involved has statistical, scientific, and humanistic dimensions. 

At Harley, we bring together environmental education and community engagement through collaborative projects and classes meant to inspire while creating a culture of continuous learning, growth, and development.

In this issue, we will hear from alums who utilize sustainable approaches in food, architecture, and transportation, and highlight a class, club, and project related to sustainability. 

We will also find out how COVID is impacting our sports program and learn about our Lives of Great Purpose award recipients.

This has been a year like no other. Enjoy the latest issue of Becoming!
