Workshops: 2023-2024

Design Thinking for Environmental Education
Design thinking has garnered a lot of buzz in recent years, but how might it be applied to your teaching practice? Join facilitators from the Alberta Council for Environmental Education in exploring how to use the Design Thinking process to answer the question, “How might students explore environmental careers?” Using the lens of Environmental Stewardship, this hands-on session will give teachers an understanding of the design thinking process and how to implement it in their classrooms.

Though targeted at CTF teachers wanting to explore Environmental Stewardship, this collaborative and hands-on workshop, is applicable no matter which grade or subject area you teach. Work through a crash-course in the design thinking process and come away with an outline for integrating environmental education and sustainability approaches throughout your school year.

EcoSchools in Alberta: A Curriculum Linked Framework for Environmental and Climate Action
Are you an educator in Alberta passionate about integrating environmental, climate, and sustainability action into your school curriculum? Join facilitators from the Alberta Council for Environmental Education for a workshop that focuses on the EcoSchools Canada program—a curriculum-linked framework designed to empower students, educators, and schools to take meaningful environmental and climate action. Discover practical strategies, resources, and best practices for implementing EcoSchools in your educational setting and fostering a culture of environmental stewardship and sustainability.
Equitable Climate Justice in the Classroom
As educators, it is critical to consider how diversity, inclusion, and equitable our practices are. But how can we ensure that a curricular focus lives alongside a social-justice approach? Join ACEE staff to learn about climate justice, and how to include multiple perspectives when teaching about the climate and environment. Questions covered include:

What is intersectionality? What is the role of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in understanding climate impacts, resilience, and solutions? What is the role of environmental education in reconciliation? Why are two-eyed seeing and social justice vital climate solutions?

How can we support?

Our staff are well-versed to support you in developing an interdisciplinary inquiry-based approach to environmental education.
