Rethinking Green Workshop:

This workshop is designed to provide practical strategies, resources and curriculum connections that support environmental education and sustainable practices in the classroom and the community.

This workshop has been revised this year in partnership with the Jane Goodall Institute of Canada and Learning for a Sustainable Future.

Workshop GOALS include:

* To help participants gain a deeper understanding of the importance of environmental education and sustainable practices connect to the classroom and the community.

* To effectively integrate environmental education through cross-curricular connections

* To provide members with practical, classroom-tested strategies that support the care and protection of the environment

* To explore strategies to turn ideas into social action in the classroom, on the school yard and in the local community.
