With Laura Sacks and Shea Wyatt, hosted in partnership with Wildsight and CBEEN

Join Laura Sacks and Shea Wyatt for an interactive workshop to explore strategies to address climate change using grounded conversations and the cutting-edge climate simulator En-ROADS. The resulting experience is hopeful, scientifically-grounded, action-oriented, and eye-opening.

This workshop will feature a group climate solutions activity, followed by a guided discussion with workshop participants and facilitators. During the discussion we will explore the experience in-depth, discuss curricular ties, and provide the opportunity for participants to use the model themselves. Facilitators will also share our experience and resources for incorporating En-ROADS-facilitated learning into educational strategies at all levels.

With Pamela Gibson of Learning for a Sustainable Future

Finding curriculum opportunities outside in winter is easier than you think. Whether it is Math, Science, the Arts or any other subject area, winter outside offers educators a plethora of interesting, motivating curriculum connections not found in other seasons. Come join me for a ‘walk through winter opportunities’.

Pamela Gibson is a career classroom teacher with an Arts background and a love of teaching and learning outdoors. Making curriculum come alive through experiential learning, helping students feel a sense of belonging and love for the earth, connected to nature and community is my passion. I am currently working for Learning for a Sustainable Future as Lead in implementing the Sustainable Future Schools project.
