Using Project Learning Tree to Promote Forest Literacy
Do you want to support the environment, health, and economy of your community by promoting forest literacy? Learn how to include forest literacy in your programs by using Project Learning Tree (PLT), an environmental education program aligned with NGSS and designed for classroom teachers and other educators, parents, and community leaders working with youth preK-12. This interactive workshop will explore many of the new PLT resources on topics including forest literacy, climate change, urban forests, green jobs, and more
Environmental Education Messaging
How can we most effectively talk about the value of environmental education, in a way that resonates with members, potential members, supporters, and partners? Participants will learn how to apply NAAEE's recently revised messaging platform to better reach their target audience. Start thinking about what YOU would like to create. Each participant will begin building their own communication piece, using the new NAAEE messaging tool, during this active-participation workshop
How to use Indigenous history to create a brighter future
In this workshop, participants will learn how the Quinnetukut's Indigenous people interacted with and shaped their environment, keeping things in balance for over 12,000 years. Indigenous people are raised to view the world differently. At an early age, they are taught through oral traditions to respect all living things as equals with the same rights as human beings. From one generation to the next, as they learn by doing and experiencing, relationships with the land and its resources are developed and nurtured to ensure that future generations can enjoy all the gifts the land offers. Sharing this traditional knowledge in the classroom empowers the next generation of students to view things in a different way, bringing about the much-needed change we need to heal this land and our relationships with other living beings.
