For the foreseeable future, the topic of climate change will overshadow all that we do in environmental education. Yet educating young people about climate change is challenging. The science is complex and the solutions are not simple. In this interactive webinar, we will discuss the latest science, the numerous challenges faced by educators inside and outside of schools, and then introduce simple science experiments and practical approaches to teaching about climate change. We’ll learn to use K–12 activities developed by educators across North America that explore the greenhouse effect, the importance of a stable climate, clean air, the real cost of cars, and car-trip reduction programs for high schools.

 

This webinar is part of OSEE’s Interactions Live webinar series.

Did you know that flooding is the most common natural disaster in Canada? And yet, many are not prepared to protect against the impacts of extreme weather events such as floods, which are often caused by climate change. When it comes to flood protection, we can learn how to plan, take action, and record impact! In this webinar, we will be taking a deep dive into the Flood:Ed program — an exciting challenge for students that offers hands-on learning about flood planning and resilience. Join us in discussing the impacts of flooding both at home and school while exploring ways to stay protected!

Join author Rachel Salt, as she discusses her two recently-published books, The Plastic Problem and Your Plastic Footprint. Though plastic has numerous benefits, our reliance on this
sturdy, light, and flexible material, paired with its longevity and our changing consumer habits means we’ve created a real plastic problem. However, there are reasons to be hopeful! This webinar will investigate the many meaningful and creative ways people around the world are working to manage, reduce and eliminate plastic waste, while providing ideas for classroom activities that can be taught virtually.
