We want to deepen our understanding of environmental justice, indigenous wisdom and creative practice, to better understand our world, and as educators advocate for just climate solutions. Working with local experts/organizations in our community, we will deepen our knowledge and our facilitation practices to make more meaningful connections with each other, build knowledge across disciplines, and apply new learning in our classrooms. We will learn with and from each other, then share our learning with teachers at our sites and across our district. We will create a district-wide community of practice, inspired by the practices we learned from Our Changing Planet.
