Event is in-person at the Ontario Science Centre!

From Crises to Resilience: Caring for yourself while caring for the planet

Students need us more than ever to help them navigate between anxiety and despair, hope and action when they think about climate change. Yet teachers themselves are experiencing ever more challenges in both their professional and personal lives. How do we prioritize wellbeing while addressing the climate crisis? Join us as we explore ways to rebuild our personal resilience and empower young people to do the same.

Keynote speaker: Shameen Sandhu
TDSB System Leader, Mental Health & Professional Support Services

Workshops include: Gardens and Grants, Building Community, Taking Climate Action Through EcoSchools. Two K-8 educators from every school are invited to attend, with one release provided by TDSB EcoSchools. Supply coverage information provided after registration.
