Planting Seeds of Sustainability in Early Childhood Education and Pathway Program (E)

Track: Mapping Sustainability

Work on the Sustainable Development Goals happens across an institution. It’s in buildings, classrooms, meetings, outdoors and in relationships and collaboration. Three faculty members will share ground-breaking initiatives that are making local and national impact and creating global partnerships. The incredible work done inside and outside the classroom will inspire you with new ideas and ways of thinking.

Two faculty members – working across the Faculty of Health Sciences and Wellness, Indigenous Education and Engagement, and the Humber Arboretum and Centre for Urban Ecology – are conducting research on how collective engagement, inquiry, and storytelling on and with the land in a Two-Eyed Land-Based Play and Co-Learning course may contribute to (re)storying and reshaping early childhood pedagogies and practice.

A third faculty member from the Faculty of Liberal Arts will share learnings from the first iteration of a green sector pathway program option. To achieve ambitious climate, biodiversity, and social justice targets, we need skilled workers in the green sector. This foundation year is a bridge between high school and post-secondary education into green sector programs.
