30D All Colours Belong in Nature: Inclusive Outdoor Education to Support Student Wellness and Racial Equity

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Nature supports wellness in many ways, but not all students have equitable access to nature. Mainstream outdoor education is inaccessible, exclusive, and expensive. It perpetuates systemic racism and emphasizes white issues, white environmental heroes, and western conceptualizations of nature. Racism and racial inequalities may make youth feel ignored, unwelcome, and unprepared in outdoor education.

Join CPAWS to learn how you can provide inclusive nature connection opportunities that support your students’ wellbeing. This session will guide your role as a teacher in responding to racial inequality in outdoor education by providing tools and resources that make a difference in the classroom. CPAWS will demonstrate how to take your favourite environmental lesson plans and apply cross-cultural guidelines to make your lessons more accessible for all your students!
