The Importance of Indigenous Perspectives in Environmental Education

Natural Curiosity

How might an awareness of Indigenous perspectives inform your practice over time as you explore lasting connections to the natural world with your students?

Natural Curiosity is an innovative environmental teacher education program housed at the Dr. Eric Jackman Institute of Child Study Laboratory School, OISE-University of Toronto. We help educators across Turtle Island (North America) implement and improve environmental education with the inclusion of Indigenous perspectives through our programming and best-selling educator resource, Natural Curiosity 2nd Edition: The Importance of Indigenous Perspectives in Children's Environmental Inquiry.

Since 2011, our program has distributed over 31,000 copies of our resource and engaged with 13,000+ educators in professional development programming.
