The Climate and Equity project plans to transform how climate and equity are taught by reducing teacher isolation and supporting collective growth.
The incidence of extreme climate impacts is increasing. Levels of eco-anxiety and existential dread related to global warming among youth are at record highs. Education about global warming, and its inequitable impacts, is urgently needed, yet teachers who address this need are isolated .
To begin to address this urgent need, we will host a pilot group of 12 high-school teachers at a one-week, expenses-paid Climate and Equity Institute at the Schoodic Institute campus. The Institute will be held July 17th – July 23rd, 2022.
Teachers will discuss equitable pedagogy, hear presentations about the global — and psychological — impacts of climate change, explore climate change impacts firsthand through guided field trips, and have free time to pursue additional topics.
Teachers can expect to leave the workshop with new ideas and a renewed sense of hope and purpose about educating young people to make a difference in the world!"
We had a wonderful response from the community and many outstanding applicants. We hope that the event becomes an annual one. If you are interested and think you may apply next year, please send your name and contact information to email@example.com and we will be in touch next spring.
