Ecomomics and the Environment Camp

I received an e-mail invitation about this Economics and the Environment Camp from the MCEE today, but I was a little concerned about the point-of-view that may be presented....
...At our summer camp, you'll see these connections first hand, as you follow up classroom sessions with visits to sites that may include a hydroelectric facility, a taconite mine, a paper plant, a sanitation facility, and a wilderness experience.
...
This program is made possible by support from the National Council on Economic Education through funding from the U.S. Department of Education Office of Innovation and Improvement, Minnesota Power, Flint Hills Resources, and R.J. Walser Foundation.

Minnesota Power is the electric company Up North.
Flint Hills Resources runs the big refinery in Rosemount.
The Walser Foundation is related to the Walser Auto Group.

Is there only one point of view? I thought education was about hearing multiple points of view.
