Our Shared Future: Engaging Students in Reconciliation and Climate Solutions Through EcoSchools

Symposia presented at North Central, Calgary City and Greater Edmonton Teachers' Conventions

In this bilingual symposium focused on envisioning and building a greener future, the Alberta Council for Environmental Education (ACEE) brings together education partners, working professionals, youth voices, and Indigenous perspectives to inspire you to incorporate sustainability themes into your teaching practice. Each session will focus on a key ingredient required for building a greener future and will feature ties to curriculum, pedagogical approaches that foster student engagement and deep learning, resources you can explore with your students, connections to Indigenous perspectives and reconciliation, and a demonstration of how all of these are supported by the EcoSchools sustainability framework. 

Notre avenir partagé: impliquer les étudiants dans la réconciliation et les solutions climatiques avec ÉcoÉcoles

Symposia à North Central, Calgary City et Greater Edmonton Teachers' Conventions

Dans ce symposium bilingue axé sur la vision et la création d'un avenir plus vert, l'Alberta Council for Environmental Education (ACEE) rassemble des partenaires en éducation, des professionnels, des voix de jeunes, et des perspectives autochtones pour vous inspirer à intégrer des thèmes de durabilité dans votre pratique d'enseignement. Chaque session se concentrera sur un ingrédient clé requis pour construire un avenir plus vert et présentera des liens avec le programme d'études, des approches pédagogiques qui favorisent l'engagement des élèves et l'apprentissage en profondeur, des ressources que vous pouvez explorer avec vos élèves, des liens avec la réconciliation, et une démonstration de comment tous ces éléments sont intégrés dans le cadre de durabilité ÉcoÉcoles. Ce symposium comprend deux volets distincts (anglais et français) comportant chacun six ateliers d'une durée d’une heure.
