Climate Change Education Project

Climate change has always been an important theme for Inside Education.

Our full suite of programs and learning materials incorporate the topic into environment and natural resource education in creative and meaningful ways. We know that the topic is becoming increasingly important in the classroom and we are here to support teachers in bringing the issues to the forefront of their lessons while inspiring students to participate in meaningful, community-based projects that empower growth and change in Alberta. With this we have made Climate Change Education a priority and plan to introduce the following programs in the coming year that will cover this important topic.

TEACHER PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENTS

Inside Education hosts 4 energy and climate focused professional development programs each year. The goal is to expose teachers to people, places and perspectives that can enrich their energy & climate lessons.
