3 Capacity Building In Ontario For Ecological Literacy The great challenge of our time is to build and nurture sustainable communities communities that are designed in such a way that their ways of life, businesses, economies, physical structures, and technologies do not interfere with nature's inherent ability to sustain life. The first step in this endeavor is to understand the principles of organization that ecosystems have developed to sustain the web of life. This understanding is what we call ecological literacy. - Fritjof Capra
4 Environmental Education Ontario - EEON Presentation by David Arthur, EEON, OSEE, WRDSB It s a great idea and long overdue. I sure hope it inspires every province. eco-literacy is a critical part of it. - David Suzuki an important step towards improving the ecological literacy of Ontario citizens an essential factor in in promoting healthsustaining environments for all. - Environmental Health Committee, Ontario College of Family Physicians
5 EEON Partners and Sponsors EEON is a coalition of environmental and ecological educators, concerned citizens, and representatives from nongovernmental organizations and government agencies.

12 EEON Preschool Grade 12 Teachers This section is for individuals and organizations that support, deliver, or provide environmental and sustainability education to educators currently teaching (in-service) or preparing to teach (pre-service) in the formal, traditional, or non-traditional education system, from pre-kindergarten through to grade 12. Outcomes Preschool grade 12 teachers will: 1. Become part of an educational commitment to environmental and sustainability education and ecological literacy Sample Indicators: They acquire a sound understanding of ecological concepts, principles, and issues. They are able to plan collaboratively and integrate environmental education across all disciplines. They are able to use the outdoors effectively as a teaching environment. They are supported by an increasingly environmentally aware public and parental community. They recognize the environmental implications of investment choices for teachers pension funds.
13 2. Access the professional development and high-quality, current resources needed to teach environmental issues and ecological concepts Sample Indicators: Ontario education policy makes E&SE a required teachable towards teaching certification. Faculties of education introduce E&SE programs and courses, and hire faculty members qualified to train student teachers in the area of ecological literacy. Teachers benefit from comprehensive pre-service training and accreditation in E&SE. In-service teachers attend workshops, summer institutes and conferences that provide training for integrating ecological concepts and environmental issues across disciplines. Teachers are trained to find, and are provided with good access to materials and activities on environmental issues and ecological concepts that are current, scientifically accurate, developmentally appropriate, and biasbalanced.
14 3. Teach effectively to provide students with a sound understanding of and ability to apply ecological concepts Sample Indicators: Teachers make regular use of curricula that include ecological concepts and environmental issues, and use E&SE to deliver curriculum requirements as a particular focus, and across subject areas. They apply concepts such as ecological thinking (or systems thinking), sustainability, stewardship, sense of place, environmental costs and benefits, participatory democracy, and the precautionary principle. Their teaching reflects the holistic nature of the environment and its complex relationship to society, technology, and the economy. Their teaching includes a focus on the relationships between environmental health and human health. They provide students with opportunities to develop skills of inquiry, communication, problem solving, decision-making, and informed participation in addressing environmental issues. They appreciate, understand, and discuss the importance of innovation and ingenuity, in both technological design and business, for advancing sustainable communities. They provide experiences in outdoor environments that enhance students knowledge of and connection to the real world outside the school, which includes the natural world. They collaborate and share their experience and expertise with other educators through workshops, professional organizations, and publications. They involve students in working towards environmentally friendly schools. They use holistic educational approaches to investigate environmental values.
15 4. Guide students to become environmentally knowledgeable, ethical, responsible, and literate citizens Sample Indicators: They teach students to assess the ecological and sustainability implications of everyday choices and behaviours. They invite a critical analysis of products and consumption, and their implications for ecological and economic sustainability. They provide opportunities to discuss and build an understanding of the major long-term economic and technological changes required to create a truly sustainable economy. They model and teach the use of environmentally friendly, sustainable practices in the classroom and the school community. They initiate or work with environment clubs and school and community environmental projects. They teach students how to become environmentally responsible citizens. Students are ecologically literate, well informed on major environmental issues, and able to make ecologically responsible choices for their lives and their future, both personally and professionally.
16 5. Work towards whole school involvement in environmental stewardship and institutional greening Sample Indicators: Schools practice what they teach, through environmental policy and institutional greening (e.g., develop coordinated, annual environmental plans, including waste reduction and recycling, energy conservation, and school ground greening). They plan curriculum-based lessons that include learning about the ecological advantages of their school environmental plan (ecological literacy). They make indoor and outdoor learning environments more conducive to and supportive of E&SE; they engage in greening initiatives which support environmental stewardship and build a sense of place. Principals and administrators support regular school involvement in environmental learning and practical, hands-on, environmental activities. School boards and systems recognize the economic advantages to be achieved in conjunction with environmental conservation efforts (e.g., reduced energy costs, lower consumption, cooler schools with additional trees and green roofs). There are observed changes in acceptance of environmental behaviour in the school and community.
17 Outcomes Preschool grade 12 teachers will: 1. Become part of an educational commitment to environmental and sustainability education and ecological literacy 2. Access the professional development and high-quality, current resources needed to teach environmental issues and ecological concepts 3. Teach effectively to provide students with a sound understanding of and ability to apply ecological concepts 4. Guide students to become environmentally knowledgeable, ethical, responsible, and literate citizens 5. Work towards whole school involvement in environmental stewardship and institutional greening
