Dr. Sang Putu Kaler Surata--of Mahasaraswati University in Indonesia--is devoting his PEER Science project to train the country's future teachers in education for sustainable development. His group is creating course materials to teach students about the agro-ecology of Bali, with an emphasis on subaks, community-level religious institutions that manage irrigation water. The project involves close collaboration with University of Arizona scientist John Stephen Lansing, who studies subaks and the risks they face. Here Dr. Surata and his students pose with local farmers.
