BOOK A WILD VOICES FOR KIDS PROGRAM!
Due to recent CBEEN program funding changes, we will now offer price options for Wild Voices for Kids programs.
Please select the price option that suits your needs, knowing that some schools don’t have access to the financial resources that others do.
We ask that teachers ensure that a program does not violate their school and/or district policies before booking. It is the responsibility of the teacher to confirm program suitability and communicate needs and questions to the Community Educator.
We continue to have a COVID-19 policy in place and teachers booking programs are expected to read this plan in advance of their program to understand our policies and practices around offering programs.
Questions about the policy may be directed to the Wild Voices Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org

About the Program
Explore solutions to climate change, even ways to reverse global warming with Project Drawdown. Through engaging exercises,
we will connect to solutions that are inspiring for us.
Often climate change classes focus on the problems with a final short time to the alternatives and solutions. In this overwhelming
time when many of us experience climate anxiety, this workshop offers a new story for local and global change and engages
students to be active hopeful citizens.
Project Drawdown, an international coalition of more than 200 researchers and other experts who identified and presented the 80 most substantive solutions to global warming. Founded by author, environmentalist, and entrepreneur Paul Hawken, the group revealed their extraordinary findings: that it is possible not just to slow global warming, but to actually begin reversing it by 2050. Drawdown is that point in time when the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere begins to decline on a year-to-year basis. It is when we begin to actually reverse global warming. https://www.drawdown.org/
About the Community Educator
After graduating from university, one of Malin's first jobs was to teach climate change to schools in Sweden. Her passion for nature and social justice has lead her to travel to many countries, to be a volunteer and activist, and now to homestead in the West Kootenay. Since 2017, Malin offers forest preschool and nature camp programming in Nelson.
