Go Wild School Grants – Due January 31st, 2018

University and college campuses have an amazing range of resources to apply to pressing environmental issues which give them the capacity for a strong leadership role as we transition to a sustainable society.

What are your ideas for enhancing this leadership on your campus? Can you imagine a way to increase the campus connection to nature? Can you suggest ways your faculty can address important questions about sustainability? Do you see an opportunity for different faculties to work together to create solutions to environmental problems? How can your campus engage the broader community in the practice of sustainability? How would you engage your campus in protecting, restoring, monitoring or celebrating nature? With a Go Wild School Grant, you can bring your project to life. Be bold and submit your ideas to WWF-Canada.

Let’s Go Wild.

We are looking for ideas that:
Protect or restore: Activities directly related to restoring, rehabilitating, or recovering natural ecosystems on campus

Practice or monitor: Activities directly related to introducing new hands-on or digital practices that reflect the value of nature in the campus community or develop new practices related to the impact of climate change Connect and collaborate: Activities that foster new relationships on campus, for example, between student clubs, faculties and departments, in order to explore new perspectives that build the practice of sustainability.

Fleming College Center for Sustainability Across the Curriculum

A workshop to explore the convergence of Sustainability and Indigenous Knowledge in applying teaching and learning strategies for a Sustainable Future In collaboration with the Association for Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education, Fleming College is hosting an innovative workshop that will bring Indigenous faculty members and Knowledge Holders together with faculty engaged in sustainability education. This will be a unique opportunity to discuss the synergies between Indigenous teachings and sustainability goals. The session will also include community members from our region and beyond that have a special interest in this area.

The workshop will highlight programs that are successfully bringing these “two worlds” together including Fleming's Indigenous Perspectives Initiative and Trent University's Indigenous Environmental Studies and Sciences Program. The day will involve exploring the synergies between these models and sustainability curriculum activities such as sustainability learning outcomes, applied student sustainability projects and inter-disciplinary teaching and learning. The day will also include interactive activities in keeping with these themes. Located in the beautiful Kawartha Lakes area within the Mississauga Territory of Ontario, Canada, this day long workshop will take place at Fleming College on June 15th, 2017 and promises to be a unique opportunity to share knowledge in a way that will leave participants with new insights perspectives for their teaching practice.

This workshop coincides with the area’s recent designation as a Regional Centre for Expertise in Sustainability Education (RCE) under the United Nations University and as endorsed by UNESCO. One of the main priorities of the RCE is to engage Indigenous Knowledge across all curricula. The workshop and this overarching effort reflects the ambition of the region to infuse sustainability at all ages and stages of life-long learning and to share best practices across regions in doing so.
