Sustainability in Prisons Project, or SPP, works to empower sustainable change by bringing nature, science, and environmental education into prisons. This partnership is founded by Evergreen State College and the Washington State Department of Corrections. SPP brings together incarcerated individuals, scientists, corrections staff, students, and program partners to promote education, conserve biodiversity, practice sustainability, and help build healthy communities. They deliver various science, sustainability and environmental education programs in all 12 Washington State prisons. Environmental education courses are offered to incarcerated students, staff, and partners which includes educational achievement certificates upon completion of the course. An expert in natural science, sustainability, and the environment will share their expertise in the environmental workshop series. Additionally, the Roots of Success program offers an environmental curriculum that covers vital environmental topics and challenges students to think critically and innovate community-based solutions. Roots students are equipped with job readiness and re-entry skills to prepare for work in the green economy. Contact Sustainability in Prisons Project for more information on their programs.
