Breathing with the World: Deepening Empathy Through Engagement with Indigenous Perspectives
Join us on Tuesday February 20th from 4:00-5:30 PM ET for our first webinar of 2024!
This webinar shares a deepened understanding of empathy, affirms the role of all our relatives in the empathy cycle, and offers concrete strategies to support the empathy development of children and teachers alike. This hands-on workshop will offer space for reflection and action within each of our empathy journeys to support equitable and inclusive nature-based learning in your unique context.

In our February edition of Making the Shift our Educator Story comes from one of the members of the Community of Practice (CoP) hosted by Dr. Thelma Nayquonabe and Claire Underwood., Laura Whitaker. For Laura, being an outdoor educator is what feels best to her. From the start of her teaching training and journey she was immediately pulled into this field and wanted to understand more about how land could not only teach her but also the young learners she works with. In this month's edition, you can also read about our the many events upcoming over the next month, and more resources to support environmental education and incorporating Indigenous perspectives.
Check out the newsletter today for these upcoming events and educator resources!
Doug Anderson and Julie Comay (authors of NC2!) had a lovely conversation on Earthy Chats hosted by our friends at Green Teacher Magazine, The Outdoor Learning Store, CBEENetwork, and Stoked on Science about exploring environmental inquiry with an Indigenous perspective.
