Workshops, tools and resources for environmental and climate learning.

Professional learning that impacts our future.

Clean is excited to offer free professional learning opportunities for teachers and educators across Nova Scotia.  

Our immersive and rich workshops give you tools and support for integrating climate and environmental learning across all subjects.

All of our environmental workshops are accompanied by unique sets of cross-curricular learnings experiences using our inquiry-based learning template. These ready to use plans are supported by the abundance of online resources and tools educators can use to bring the wilderness into the classroom. Upon completion of a workshop, educators will receive a Classroom Resources Kit tailed to each grade level! These wonderful kits (valued at over $300) are filled with beautiful books, outdoor ed gear and eco friendly products.

During our workshops, you will: 

  • Gain foundational knowledge in grade-appropriate environmental education. 
  • Identify opportunities for inquiry-based cross-curricular learning, with a focus on grade-level outcomes. 
  • Reflect on how to authentically integrate Indigenous ways of knowing, including Etuaptmumk and Netukulimk.  
  • Leave with ready-to-use, hands-on, environmental and climate change learning experiences.
