Teaching in a Climate Crisis
OISE's Environmental & Sustainability Education Initiative
How can teachers best address the climate crisis? Why is this important, what do we need to know, and how should we 'be'? Also, who's leading the way here in Canada, and what can we learn from looking abroad? Two new teachers from OISE's Master of Teaching program, recent grad Yana Lee and second-year student Jackson Fowlow, have conversations with key players and minds to answer these questions. Strap in for some insightful, interesting, and hopefully inspiring discussions.

A VOICED RADIO EXCLUSIVE SERIES

OVERVIEW: Episode 1: Hosted by Stephen Hurley, who showed us the ropes on podcasting. Episodes 2-5: Hosted by Yana Lee Episodes 6-8: Hosted by Jackson Fowlow Listening Order: Whilst Ep. 1 will introduce you to the series; who made it and why, and Ep. 8 includes some closing reflections, the episodes don't necessarily HAVE to be listened to in any particular order. There is a bit of flow between them, but they ultimately function as standalone episodes. Choose a topic or speaker you're interested in, and go from there! This series was produced by Jackson Fowlow & Yana Lee. Many thanks to Dr. Hilary Inwood (OISE) & Stephen Hurley (www.voiced.ca) for all of their assistance and extra hours, without whom this would never have become a reality!! Their guidance, as well as helping us each purchase our own professional microphones, is truly appreciated. All music you hear is original and performed/recorded by Jackson. www.jacksonfowlow.com Conversations were recorded virtually with guests in their own locales, whilst hosts Jackson and Yana spoke from their own respective homes, in Toronto, Canada. We acknowledge that this is the territory of the Anishinaabe and Onkwehonwe peoples, whose enduring presence remains, and whose spirit and practice of respecting and caring for the land is an example for us all.
