   Curriculum Design and Training

GERI delivers a sustainable communities and environmental justice curriculum, workshops and training materials interfaced with multicultural educational techniques.   The training is highly interactive and is designed to increase awareness and educate about fundamentals in this challenging arena.

The curriculum and training can be tailored and delivered to an audience of multi-stakeholder groups or to a single stakeholder organization.  The objective is to enhance to capacity of individuals, institutions and communities to identify and address critical issues and engage in constructive dialogue.

GERI launched an innovative training program in 2004 funded by a brownfields grant from U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Solid Waste & Emergency Response.  The Sustainable Brownfields Redevelopment Program (SBRP) is focused on brownfields redevelopment.  It is a new integrated approach to brownfields that bridges environmental justice, public health, environmental cleanup and land reuse goals with neighborhood revitalization objectives. 
GERI is piloting this innovation that brings together environmental justice groups and CDCs in a training program which helps them learn about the obstacles to and opportunities posed by brownfields, ultimately, leading to reuse of under-utilized properties.  These constituencies will be trained in ways that promote community involvement, advance networking opportunities, stimulate tech transfer between these groups, cross pollinate the skills these sectors bring to neighborhood revitalization and, ultimately, result in coordination in terms of working on local projects.
