Bayside City Council – What’s on this Term

24th January 2017 BY: sustainabilityhub@ceres.org.au

Teacher Environment Network Meeting

When: Wednesday, 26 July 2017
4:00 – 5:30pm
St. Columba’s Primary School (Glenhuntly Rd, Elwood)
This workshop will have a focus on Climate Change (social research) and Passion Mashing frameworks for getting colleagues on board with a movement for change in schools.
This TEN workshop will be facilitated by Dianna McDonald and David Speller from Sustainability Victoria, who may already be known to many educators for the work they do with the Resource Smart Schools programs. Dianna will be presenting the latest SV research on climate change and their TAKE2 initiative, assisting educators to build knowledge, skills and capacity so they can help their school take action on climate change. David will facilitate a Passion Mashing session demonstrating how to bring teachers on board with a Passion Mashing framework. This framework can provide a platform, to build teachers confidence when teaching Sustainability. The Passion Mashing can also help teachers become familiar with the Vic Curriculum by combining what they are passionate about with Sustainable organising ideas. This session has the potential to really assist you, the passionate teacher, get others to get on board and find their passion for sustainability teaching.
