Environmental Education has been returned to the BC curriculum thanks to your input and support!
Last spring, when the first draft of brand new curriculum for BC was released, teachers all over the province noticed that there was something glaringly missing: Environmental Education.
Believing in the fundamental importance of learning about ecosystems, ecology and sustainability, thousands of letters were sent to the Ministry of Education, petitions signed and voices raised, united in their message to bring Environmental Education back into the new curriculum.
Your voices had an impact. The recently released new draft of the curriculum has improved place-based learning and Environmental Education in every single grade level. Now, educators can work to create relevant, meaningful, nature-centred and place-based Environmental Education for every child in British Columbia because it supported by the curriculum.
We would like to thank you all for your part in this huge victory.
