Focus: A New Climate

The 2019 TDSB EcoSchools conference aims to share a wide range of ideas, approaches, and teaching strategies for EE in classroom and community settings. Our theme this year of ‘ A New Climate’ is aligned with the TDSB’s response to climate change; speakers and presenters will model innovative climate action practices that are taking place in schools and community organizations. Shifting from identifying the problems of climate change (often referred to as a ‘doom & gloom’ approach) towards an optimistic, solutions orientation of climate action, helps students contribute in concrete ways to enacting a sustainable future. Keynote speakers and Interactive workshops that address the professional learning needs of both experienced and novice teachers from grades K-12 on this theme will be offered at the conference.
