  • Agenda
    • Session 1: Pandemic Silver Linings and Solutions for K-12 Education
      The current disruptions affecting our educational system will no doubt have long-term impact. Recognizing the challenges and positive ramifications, the assembled panel will offer insight, inspiration, and ideas supporting educators to envision a new, more equitable future where education for sustainability becomes a top priority.

      Session 2: Rethinking the Outdoors
      Extending the classroom beyond the school walls has become a hot topic in conversations on how to keep schools open. However, offering rich outdoor learning experiences has more often been offered to students and schools of an advantaged demographic. Recognizing the health and academic benefits to ALL students, the panel will talk through strategies that lead to opportunity. No matter the zip code or family financial situation, well-designed outdoor learning experiences have a dramatic impact.

      Session 3: Best Practices for Teaching and Learning Outside
      The pandemic has highlighted the value (both academic and health related) of teaching and learning outside. This fact, along with the recognition that many educators have not received effective guidance on best practices related to outdoor learning, exemplifies the value of what this panel will share. With first-hand experience and knowledge, these skilled practitioners will offer tools and resources, leading to high-quality outdoor learning.
