Title Authentic Learning for Global Sustainability (Feb 14)
Year 2019/2020
Subject Area Sustainability
Audience Group Secondary Teachers
Open to external participants? Yes

Climate change and systems change can evoke significant eco-anxiety and
youth are particularly vulnerable to feelings of despair and helplessness. How
can we offer authentic learning by utilizing pedagogies of ‘active hope’? What
are some ways to empower students with agency, skills, and practical resources
to take local actions that contribute to planetary and personal well-being?

participants will explore innovative pedagogical approaches, resources, and
classroom activities that offer holistic environmental and climate justice
learning with an inquiry approach
that fosters critical
thinking skills and personal empowerment.
Teachers will also participate in experiential
processes designed by Dr. Joanna Macy, to explore their own planetary grief, in
order to strengthen their professional capacity to ‘hospice’ what is falling
away and ‘midwife’ what is co-arising in this era of great change.

Workshop facilitator, Maureen
Jack-LaCroix is a PhD candidate in Environmental Education, a trained Dr. Macy
facilitator of ‘The Work That Reconnects’ and Executive Editor of the Student
Leadership for Change learning resources created by BTCEA.

Note: Coffee, tea and muffins will be served. Please bring your own
cup. Handouts and links to free learning resources will also be provided.
