“WHATEVER HAPPENS IN SCHOOLS WILL HAVE PROFOUND EFFECTS ON THE REST OF SOCIETY.”


– Centre for Ecoliteracy


CITIZEN SCIENCE AND EQUITABLE ACCESS:


• Encourage students to get excited about their learning and to make a positive contribution to the school and community around them. Empower other teachers to do the same! Action projects like citizen science engage students in authentic problems and allow them to see the difference they can make.


• Value outdoor learning. Can we name the benefits? Can our stakeholders? Do we make the learning outside visible and show the impact it has on students, educators, the community?


• Improve equity of access to nearby nature spaces by removing barriers, meeting people where they are and focusing on best practices.


• Shift the risk-averse mindset to an out- door mindset as a province, a system, a community, a school, a class, an indi- vidual student/educator. This includes addressing barriers like weather, time, proper equipment concerns, and pro- viding well researched data to support resilience and curricular connections (e.g. Clothing Library).


• Access professional learning/training to build educator confidence and em- brace not being the ‘expert’ but rather a facilitator of positive, meaningful experiences in the outdoors.


• Support mentorship models that promote best practices and provide training to build confidence.


• See your school as a nature con- nection ‘hub.’
