TARGET AUDIENCE: ALL GRADE 4-9 TEACHERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND
Dr. David Orr tells us that “Given the vulnerable state of our natural world, we need a different approach to education” - one that develops students who are not only knowledgeable but also environmentally and socially conscious.
What knowledge and competencies do Alberta students need to create a sustainable future? How can we help them develop environmental stewardship and citizenship?
We’ll share the Curriculum for a Sustainable Future that you can use to enhance your own teaching, showcase inspiring classroom stories, share resources, and identify grants to help turn your ideas into actions.
This learning opportunity is being offered through curriculum implementation funding from Alberta Education.
Marie Tremblayjoined the Alberta Council for Environmental Education in May 2018 as a senior education advisor, bringing to her new role a dual passion for education and the environment. With university degrees in engineering, education, environmental design (Master’s) and ecology (PhD), it’s fair to say she also has a passion for learning. Marie’s professional experience includes over a decade of teaching in a variety of settings from grade 1 to university level, including five years in Indigenous communities of Canada’s far north. Marie has also been an active member of Alberta’s environmental community for over two decades as a graduate student, conservation scientist in the government and non-profit sectors, and board member of Nature Calgary and Alberta’s Prairie Conservation Forum. Marie lives in Calgary and when she is not working loves to explore southern Alberta’s diverse natural environments by foot, ski or paddle with her family and friends. She is also an avid cyclist and proud mother of two delightful young men, Eric and Alex.
