Join us for our second discussion where we will move from inquiry to action around just and inclusive education about invasive species.
About this Event
The language we use to describe the world around us plays a role in creating the framework we use to understand it. While we share a common connection to the natural world, the way we teach and talk about it can prevent us from having conversations that include all perspectives.
Introduced species provide us with a starting point for an exploration of how ecological education can be an inclusive and just endeavor by considering how words like, “invasive” and “alien” convey cultural concepts that can be perceived as exclusive.
Join us for our second discussion where we will move from inquiry to action. This dialogue will focus on shifting our perspective and developing an action plan around creating a set of materials and activities that will provide best practices and guidance for the community of ecology education practitioners
March 16 7:00 – 8:30 PM
