Proving the Hope Narrative
Led by Sabrina Chiefari, Environmental Educator
The shared experience connects. Universally. Where are the opportunities in OE/EE to relay stories about nature, communities, and experiences in a hopeful and confident way? Can we be more than ‘eco-Aesops’ when working with story-telling? How do we make sure to share Indigenous stories in a non-commodified way? This full day workshop aims to bridge all these questions as a way to identify resilience in the climate crises and prove hope narratives.
Project Wet and Waterways
Led by Bonnie Anderson, Outdoor Environmental Education and Healthy Active Living Coordinator for SCDSB
Project WET Canada is a fun, hands-on, inquiry learning based, water education program for Kindergarten to Grade 12 students. It is designed for use by educators to supplement the existing provincial curricula in science, environmental and outdoor education, social studies, language arts, math, health and wellness and career education. Educators will obtain the Project WET Activity Guides through a workshop delivered by Bonnie Anderson – the winner of this years Water Educator of the Year from the Canadian Water Resources Association.
