Workshop Overview

The purpose of this workshop is to provide teachers, administrators, schools and communities with the tools to be able to tackle global issues, environmental education and community service effectively. Educators will come away from this course both inspired to create change, and with the ideas and resources to be able to make a difference within their school, locally and internationally.

One teacher, one student, one school, and one community at a time we change the human condition toward creating a positive future for all humanity.

Feedback from previous attendees:

"It is a very fruitful, meaningful and inspirational workshop which way more exceeded my expectations. Excited about taking action."

"Lovely balance of ideas, resources and opportunities to plan and collaborate - this latter being the key piece that is so often missing from PD."

"There were a number of resources and strategies that I will be able to easily implement in my classroom and teaching. However, the overall vision is the "thing" that was big take-away for me. Having a better sense of what Sustainable Education means and the value that it holds for students, teachers and schools was really powerful."

"This is one of the best workshops which I have attended. Very informative and useful workshop which provided the learning and resources that I can use for the next lesson I am going to teach."

As a result of attending this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Tackle global issues, environmental education and community service effectively
  • Make a difference within their school, locally and internationally.
