Hi, Nadine here. I am Director of the Conservation Council’s Learning Outside project and a founding member of the Great Minds Think Outside program.
I have always been a nature educator in one way or another (and have worked in climate change education, primarily with municipalities and other stakeholders). I feel very strongly that ‘climate change’ education begins with providing children ample opportunities to explore and learn in nature, developing a strong bond with the nature world. From there, they need to learn about the species and habitats around them, leading to a strong grounding in basic ecology. Understanding how the natural world works provides the foundation to understanding the complex impacts of a changing climate and is crucial for sound decision-making.February 14, 2020 at 12:51 pm #2052LouiseParticipant

My name is Geoff MacDonald and I am the Director of Education at The Gaia Project specializing in curriculum development. I was born, raised and educated in Fredericton, New Brunswick and attended the University of New Brunswick to obtain a Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Education, and Master of Education focusing on teacher education and inquiry-based learning strategies. I began working in climate change education with The Gaia Project in the summer of 2018 and developed a climate change education plan for the province of New Brunswick with support from the Environmental Trust Fund.
I am currently working with a number advisory committees across NB to design K-5, 6-8 and 9-10 climate change curriculum companion guides for teachers.
I am happy to support teachers who want to introduce climate change topics in the classroom through a platform they are most comfortable with delivering to students.
