Environmental Education Program
The Sierra Club of Canada - Atlantic Canada Chapter (SCC-ACC) Environmental Education Program will be running in Nova Scotia for the 2010-2011 school year. Please read on to learn more about these hands-on, interactive presentations that could be available for your class.
The goal of the education program is to develop and deliver environmental school programs that increase youths’ awareness, understanding and appreciation of the ecological processes and environmental issues of the Atlantic region, and to encourage environmental stewardship actions.
· Bringing People Together
We will act in the spirit of community, cooperation and teamwork in the interest of promoting, enhancing and supporting sound environmental education within Canada.
· Connections with the Earth
We focus on the interconnectedness of our ecosystems, linking the local to the global. We encourage environmental stewardship and sustainability to help reduce human impact on the planet.
We seek to provide skills that stimulate critical thought and empower participants to initiate and continue environmental activities. Our Education Programs are based on sound, credible science and are presented in an unbiased fashion, thus allowing students to consider a wide range of opinions and values to make sustainable choices.
· Education by Doing
Centered around hands-on interactive activities, our resources and programs help participants derive a sense of place.
· Program Costs
Information on program costs and registration for fall 2012 will be coming soon. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact Heidi Verheul at (902) 444-3113.
