Thank you for your interest in submitting a proposal to present a session at the Recharge 2020 Conference April 16-18, 2020 in Canmore, Alberta.

We are looking for sessions that support the conference outcomes and the 2019 Declaration in Support of Environmental Education.

Conference Outcomes

We have three outcomes for the conference, participants will:

  • Be inspired and energized by connecting and learning together.
  • Build knowledge and skills that will bring environmental and energy education into classrooms and communities.
  • Confidently apply new knowledge and ideas in their professional practice as teachers and educators.

Workshops need to be hands-on, minds-on sessions that engage participants with the subject and each other.

Declaration

Conference sessions will highlight the following important aspects of the Declaration in Support of Environmental Education:

  • Sense of place and well-being through regular connection with nature
  • Student action and stewardship that builds vibrant and resilient communities
  • Expertise from outside and classroom
  • Indigenous perspectives and knowledge

You will have the option of the following types of sessions:

  • 1-hour session
  • 1.5 hours sessions
  • 3 hour outdoor sessions

Please note that the organizer reserves the right to slightly adjust the session duration as needed.

Presenter

“Schools should prepare us for the future, not the past. The future of the world will be built on sustainability. If we learn what sustainable technologies are available when we are in school, we will be able to help shape the future of global sustainability when we graduate.” 

- Quinn, student at Jasper Place high school in Edmonton
