AP Nature & Land-Based Seminar

The Centre for Global Education, in partnership with leading Canadian environmental and educational organizations, Indigenous Elders and knowledge keepers, and experienced educators, invites educators and school districts across Canada to a transformative learning journey: the AP Nature Education Seminar.

Based on the content-agnostic framework of AP Seminar, this program uniquely emphasizes Nature Education. It shines a light on the urgent need for young minds to thoroughly understand the complexities of our climate and environment. Students, equipped to face these challenges, will develop the skills necessary to analyze, communicate, and take decisive action

Through the lens of Nature Education, this course has demonstrated its transformative potential. It equips students with the knowledge, skills, and mindset needed to navigate a rapidly changing world. The program aligns with the aspirations of educators, emphasizing experiential learning, community engagement, and a profound connection to nature.

“This course has greatly increased my understanding of Indigenous culture and sustainability, such as devising various sustainable solutions through the lens of engineering. Throughout our inquiry question projects, we invented various sustainable designs, an example being a microsociological sustainable park chair to make sustainability economically profitable to incentivize environmentally-friendly activities from corporations who have the most impact on global matters.” (Student, BC)

A cross-disciplinary course, AP Seminar allows students to delve into academic and real-world issues through the analysis of divergent perspectives. Using an inquiry-based approach, they will read, analyze, and synthesize information from diverse sources, building evidence-based arguments through essays and presentations. The goal is to endow students with precise analytical skills essential for accurate information evaluation and effective communication.
