Environmental Learning and Experience Curriculum Re-write
EEPSA is working in collaboration with our Classrooms to Communities partners, the Institute for Environmental Learning (IEL), the Ministry of Education, the Climate Action Secretariat and the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions (PICS) to re-write the Environmental Learning and Experience document. This document was last updated in 2007 and is not linked to the new curriculum, or reflective of Indigenous ways of knowing, or the challenges of climate justice.
EEPSA will participate in a working group to help review and co-create the new curriculum guide around modern attitudes towards environmental, outdoor, climate, and place-conscious learning. There are multiple working groups engaging across the province made up of Indigenous educators, academics, PSA leaders, teacher educators, and community educators.
Our circle will be one of the K-12 educator groups and we intend to take a lead within our districts in the subsequent professional rollout over the coming years. Our next meeting group will take place Thursday, May 26, 2022.
