Empowering Students Through Holistic Climate Education (Part 1)

This interactive two-part workshop aims to help teachers gain confidence and competence bringing socio-ecological learning into their classrooms and teaching about climate change. You can are welcome to attend one or both of the workshop sessions. You are currently viewing the morning session.

In the morning session participants will discuss eco-anxiety and pedagogical approaches to mitigate these demoralizing emotions, while exploring learning resources that help students connect in participatory education-in-action. Registrants will receive free access to Student Leadership for Change (SLC), an on-line library of classroom-tested learning resources for holistic climate education, which empowers students to explore their values and develop agency.       

After lunch, participants will be guided in a process of Climate Curriculum Mapping, collaboratively identifying areas where climate change can connect to the BC curriculum (beyond where it is explicitly mentioned). Participants will be introduced to SLC and discover where various Action Packs can bring eco-learning into different subjects and grades. Participants will be invited to join an emergent Action Network to connect with other engaged teachers and receive additional mentorship, resources and support.
