Webcast: Educating for Sustainability

June 7 @ 6:45 pm - 9:30 pm

FREE

According to the Sustainable Schools Project, educating for sustainability is defined as “learning that links knowledge, inquiry, and action to help children build a healthy future for themselves, their communities, and the planet.” Sustainability, along with STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) programming, such as gardening, recycling and composting, provides children with effective, high-quality teaching and learning experiences that encourage the use of critical thinking while working towards a sustainable future. Join us for this Webcast, where you will discover why there is a growing recognition for educating for sustainability in early childhood. You will also find out how you can use sustainability as a lens to envision your entire program from how decisions are made, to curriculum content, to configuring your play spaces and connecting with families.

OCFS Training Topics: 1, 3, 4

Webcast training consists of: • a live broadcast; • discussions with panelists, including national and state experts as well as child care providers; • opportunities for interaction at each training site; • activities to apply what you have learned; • extensive handout and resource materials; and • 2.5 hours of training and .25 CEUs.
