This interactive workshop aims to help teachers gain confidence and competence in teaching climate change. Participants will be guided in a process of Climate Curriculum Mapping where they will collaborate to identify areas where climate change can connect to the BC curriculum. Participants will then be introduced to Student Leadership for Change (SLC), a library of classroom-tested learning resources for holistic climate education, while empowering students to connect to their values and develop an agenda. Participants will then be invited to join an emergent Action Network to connect with our engaged teachers and receive additional mentorship, resources, and support.
Grades 5 - 12
