Welcome to SaskOutdoors Climate Action Education Page!
As a dedicated non-profit organization, SaskOutdoors is committed to supporting educators in integrating outdoor education and environmental awareness into their classrooms. With the growing urgency of climate change, educating our youth about its impacts and solutions has never been more important. On this page, we explore the significance of climate action education, the resources available to educators, and how SaskOutdoors can assist educators in imparting this vital knowledge to the next generation.
Why is Climate Change Important
Climate change is a global challenge that affects every aspect of our lives, from the air we breathe to the future of our planet. It's crucial that students understand the science behind climate change, its consequences, and the actions we can take to mitigate its effects. By integrating climate action education into the curriculum, students develop critical thinking skills, scientific literacy, and a sense of responsibility towards the environment. They become informed and engaged citizens who can make informed decisions, drive positive change, and work towards a sustainable future.
SaskOutdoors Support for Educators
At SaskOutdoors, we recognize the importance of equipping educators with the tools and knowledge they need to effectively teach climate action education. We offer comprehensive professional development programs that empower educators to confidently address climate change topics in their classrooms while incorporating outdoor learning experiences. Our workshops and training sessions are designed to provide educators with the latest scientific information, teaching strategies, and resources that make climate action education engaging and impactful.
Access to Eco Schools
As part of our commitment to empowering educators, SaskOutdoors provides access to the EcoSchools.ca platform. EcoSchools.ca is an online hub that offers a wealth of resources, lesson plans, and interactive tools specifically tailored for educators who want to take action against climate change. The platform covers a wide range of topics, from energy conservation and waste reduction to biodiversity and sustainable transportation. By utilizing this platform, educators can find inspiration, collaborate with fellow educators, and discover innovative ways to integrate climate action education into their teaching practices.
