About this event

This is an event is for classroom teachers, grades K-12, accommodating for Eastern and Central Time Zones.

**We have a training the following weekend, accommodating teachers in the Pacific and Mountain Time Zones, click here to register for that training.

Join EcoRise staff and experienced EcoRise educators for a dive into our Introduction to Environmental Justice (EJ) curriculum. These multi-session EJ lessons create a foundation for students' understanding of EJ history and concepts and explore how leadership, community action, and policy change can bring long-overdue justice. Students also explore how kindness, compassion, and empathy can contribute to repairing the damage caused by racist behaviors, policies, and systems, creating a better world for all.

This workshop will focus on:

(1) The tools and skills necessary to cultivate the mindset and posture that is essential to effectively engaging students in environmental justice work.

(2) Lesson demos, exploration, discussion, and planning, including -

  • Key environmental justice topics at both the local and national level
  • A brief EJ Timeline
  • EcoRise's beautiful EJ Hero poster series
  • EJ solutions, through role-playing advocacy strategies, researching EJ policies, and practicing policy writing.

This workshop will have some pre-work assigned upon registration and will be held via Zoom. In addition, please ensure your camera and video are working in advance of the workshop and respond to the confirmation email to secure your spot and receive the zoom link.


Participants will receive free access to our Intro to Environmental Justice curriculum and will be connected with a virtual community of environmental justice educators. Six hours of CPE credits will be provided for synchronous and asynchronous portions.
