Summer Institute for Climate Change Education 2021

About the 2021 Summer Institute:

Over 330 teachers and educators attended the virtual 2021 Summer Institute for Climate Change Education, organized by Climate Generation in partnership with the Wild Center’s Youth Climate Program, and the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The energy our youth leaders and teachers from across Canada brought to the Alberta cohort day was rejuvenating! We geared up together for a new school year of learning through a focus on solutions for a brighter future. We are inspired by the tenacity, openness and joy of our teachers in these challenging times. One participant shared:

“It was amazing to be able to connect with educators all over North America. The Alberta/Canada cohort was a great way to focus on our community.”

We look forward to sharing our learnings in upcoming ACEE webinars and workshops, at this year’s teaching conventions, and of course at next year’s Summer Institute.

 

Testimonials from 2021 Summer Institute attendees: 

“It was amazing to be able to connect with educators all over North America. The Alberta/Canada cohort was a great way to focus on our community.”

"The Summer Institute turned my teaching of climate on its head: I can now thoroughly embark on an authentic, localized exploration of solutions for our common future that empowers students and brings forth active and connected communities. How exciting!"
