Environment and Energy Education Workshop September 24th

Thanks to John Janzen Nature Centre for hosting this workshop for environment and energy educators. We explored some wonderful activities and spaces - Bee Pollinator and Native Landscapes, Compost School, Trail Tales (books to read along the trail while walking to school - thanks EverActive Schools). 

We also explored 'telling stories' using narrative storytelling. Everyone found this very useful. Here are some resources to help you with your own storytelling for your organization or project:

 

“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
