The Collaborative  |  Climate Change Pro-D Series


What is The Collaborative?

This multiday, transformative professional development (Pro-D) series brings together topic experts, passionate teachers and dedicated professionals who strive to develop a deeper understanding of the interconnected nature of climate change. Participants from the past two years of The Collaborative unanimously agreed that this Pro-D significantly shaped their approach to teaching climate change.


Teachers (Grades 7-12), staff, counsellors, and administrators who are passionate about inspiring and engaging students in one of the most pressing topics of our time.

Key Learning Outcomes:

  1. Deepen an understanding about the complexity and multi-dimensionality of climate change, its impacts on the world, including student mental health.
  2. Develop innovative pedagogical approaches focusing on hope and solution-making.
  3. Collaborate with motivated colleagues to create interdisciplinary lessons, larger co- curricular initiatives, or school-wide action plans.
