Hand-in-Hand: Working Together Toward a Sustainable Calgary
A Two-Day Environmental Symposium at the 2021 Calgary City Teachers' Convention
There's something exciting going on in the city of Calgary and we’d love you and your students to be a part of it! Join us and many of our environmental education partners as we explore the many ways that teachers and their students can learn more ABOUT, FOR and IN the environment while delivering on the curriculum. We"ll also explore how Calgary schools can contribute to our city's own strategies and initiatives, and, optionally, become part of Calgary’s growing EcoSchools community.
The twelve exciting sessions cover a range of topics including the EcoSchools certification program, biodiversity, water management, waste management, climate change and Indigenous perspectives. Each session features hands-on curriculum-linked activities and resources co-presented by a member of Calgary's vibrant environmental education community and a City of Calgary expert. To better meet your teaching needs, sessions are divided into an elementary and a secondary stream.
Session recordings are now available! Click the name of the workshop to open the video.
