National Climate Educators Retreat
The Climate Initiative (TCI) and The Ecology School invite you to attend the 3rd Annual Climate Educators Retreat on July 31- August 4, 2023, in Saco, Maine!
Our hosted location is River’s Bend Farm, home of The Ecology School. The Climate Educators Retreat is an interactive, professional development opportunity designed to support high school classroom educators in incorporating climate education in their curriculum. This retreat will build your skills in place-based education, action projects, and ways to engage your community in meaningful conversations. You will learn practical ways to educate, empower, and inspire students and community members to take action on, adapt to, or mitigate climate change, leaving everyone with a sense of agency and hope.
Throughout the four-night, five-day retreat, teachers will build their climate knowledge with experts, network with colleagues, have supported time to develop implementable projects & curricula, and learn from youth themselves about effective tools to engage them. Your registration includes delicious farm-to-table meals, as well as a stay in The Ecology School’s new dormitory. Built to the Living Building Challenge Standards, it is surrounded by trails and a river to explore during downtime. The Ecology School provides the perfect opportunity to live what you learn on this climate-resilient campus!
