About the Center Established in the 2020-21 school year, the Dutchess BOCES Center for Sustainability & Climate Education engages and empowers K-12 educators and students to contribute to a socially and ecologically sustainable community. Joining with well-known and respected colleagues from the Cloud Institute, Omega, and the Mid-Hudson Teacher Center, Dutchess BOCES embarked on a journey that includes experiential learning. Developing leaders, designing curriculum, and educating students about active environmental stewardship are at the core of the Center’s operations. During our inaugural year, we are offering exciting, free workshops to all schools and community members. Please check our flyer above for the latest information.
