Imagine a generation of innovative and motivated young people, who instinctively think and act sustainably. It is a vision that is already becoming a reality for some schools through involvement in the Enviroschools programme.
What is an Enviroschool?
The Enviroschools Programme integrates environmental education into the whole of school life, creating learning opportunities by working towards a healthy, peaceful and sustainable environment. With support from the school community, students plan, design and take action to create a sustainable school.
The programme aims to equip young people with the skills they need to be leaders in sustainability. We see a world where students are actively engaged in environmental change that will have significant effects on the school, community, nation and planet.
We see young people with a holistic sense of the environment, and the ability to confront and challenge the barriers to a sustainable future. Action projects, undertaken by Enviroschools, have both environmental and educational outcomes that benefit the school and the wider community.
We are thrilled to announce that we are offering a free half-day workshop for Enviroschools teachers and facilitators who are keen to delve into the Holistic Reflection process in some depth.
This workshop is open to all Enviroschools lead teachers who are interested in the Holistic Reflection process. Your school may already be at Bronze, Silver, or Green-Gold level and you’re unsure about where to go to next, or you may be a newer Enviroschool keen to understand the process and work towards your first reflection. We have limited places available at this workshop, so register your interest ASAP.
This workshop will be run by the awesome Sandy Bell-Jameson from the Enviroschools national team. Sandy has extensive experience with the Reflection process and will offer some valuable insights into the benefits of reflecting, some tips for kick-starting the process, and how to involve your whole school community. The workshop will be dynamic, hands-on and a fantastic learning experience!
This workshop will take place on Thursday 16 May, from 1-5pm at the Bay of Plenty Regional Council offices in First Ave, Tauranga. Light refreshments will be provided.
