Silas Binkley is a fifth-generation Boulder County native who has spent the past six years studying the complex and emergent field of sustainability. Silas devoted four years to leading field courses in the southwest region of the United States and in Mexico for Colorado Mountain College. He has traveled and studied extensively throughout Nepal, India, Indonesia, Australia, Latin America, and Western Europe. In his doctoral studies, Silas is working toward developing a new model of education, one that synthesizes the experiential and sustainability education models and that emphasizes the interdependence of ecological, social and economic balance. He terms this holistic and ecological approach as Experiential Sustainability Education (ESE). Silas is inspired by the ever evolving disciplines of human rights, international relations and transformative education and is interested in how these elements can be brought together to cultivate a more sustainable future.
