Upcoming professional learning and events

Getting Active on ResourceSmart Schools Online Sessions

These sessions are designed for schools who are wanting to kickstart their sustainability journey, whether new or re-engaging. The sessions follow an open question and answer structure. There won’t be a formal presentation during these sessions, they are simply open for you to reach out, ask questions and get active in the program. So, if you only have one question and one thing to upload, we can help you do that during the session. Our 2024 dates are pending.

ResourceSmart Schools Progress Workshops

These in-person workshops are designed to support sustainability coordinators and other teachers/educators and staff involved in sustainability from schools working through the ResourceSmart Schools program.
