Date and Time:
Thursday, October 22, 2020, 5:00pm
Climate Action in the Classroom: San Antonio (Part 1 of a 2 Part Series for San Antonio Area Classroom Educators)
Join EcoRise, experienced teachers, and community partners to explore curriculum resources and student-driven grant opportunities that can be used to shape students’ understanding of the causes and impact of climate change within their community. Through this interactive professional development, teachers will access the tools that they need to help their students evaluate sustainability issues related to energy, transportation, waste, water, food, air, and public spaces to empower students to become a part of San Antonio’s Climate Action and Adaptation Plan (CAAP).
This workshop is for current SAN ANTONIO AREA K-12 teachers*. All content areas are welcome. PD credit will be provided. This training is made possible through the support of the City of San Antonio Office of Sustainability.
*Participants will receive access to our bilingual, STEM-based Sustainable Intelligence Curriculum (SI) with over 200 hands-on K-12 lessons, including EV Lessons for Schools, EcoRise Environmental Justice Lessons, and Design Studio Curriculum which guides students through a creative problem-solving process as they create innovative solutions to sustainability and climate challenges. As well as access to student driven classroom grant funds.
Shared Vision for Engaging Youth in the CAAP:
San Antonio has a strong and active youth demographic that can be powerful allies in promoting the CAAP. We strive to empower San Antonio’s next generation of climate champions with the tools they need to become effective advocates in their community. We will leverage partners, local networks, leading-edge resources, and vast experience of the community in supporting and empowering students to engage San Antonio youth in the climate conversation, with a strong focus on engaging youth of color and students that have been historically underrepresented in the environmental movement.
