Connecting with Communities: Educating for Climate Justice in School Communities

Saturday November 19th, 9am-3pm ET

How can we re-connect with community to develop agency and resilience in a climate crisis? What can we learn from diverse voices and creative approaches to envision an equitable future for all life on this planet? This conference explores how K-12 educators and their students can help to build networks that support relationship and reciprocity to create just and sustainable communities. This free hybrid conference takes place on Saturday November 19, 2022, and is open to all TDSB educators & staff, members of the OISE community, as well as others in education. This annual conference is hosted collaboratively by the TDSB’s Sustainability Office and OISE’s Sustainability & Climate Action Network.
