From Ecological Footprints to Thoughtprints

Youth educators will find much of interest in the Winter issue of Green Teacher. Stephen Goobie challenges us to go beyond ecological footprints to also consider our “thoughtprints”.  Readers will find practical articles about creating eco-poetry, climate change treasure hunts, and plastic bottle greenhouses. Other important contributions include a fun way to train outdoor educators, using unconventional dramatic forms in environmental programs, converting a public school to student-led outdoor learning, and using Albert Schweitzer’s teachings to promote environmental ethics to newcomers.  Lastly, there are reviews of 21 exciting new educational resources.
