York University-Ecosource Certificate Course



Join Ecosource & York University for three, 2-day Learning Modules

Are you interested in creating a vermicomposting system at your school? Do you want to learn more about growing food for your curriculum or how to build a solar oven? Do you want to understand Environmental Education Policies in Ontario or strategies to fundraise for a school environmental project?

For the eighth year, Ecosource and York University will be offering three unique professional development certificate courses starting early 2018 focused on Environmental and Sustainability Education. The program will offer hands-on learning to selected educators interested in learning about the latest tools and strategies for environmental education.

Examples of past modules:

Food Systems & Gardening for the Curriculum
Composting, Waste, and the Whole School Approach
Ecosystems & Stewardship in School Communities
Water, Green Infrastructure and Environmental Campaigns


  • Tool kits, resources, and lesson plans
  • Instruction on writing grants for environmental projects
  • A Certificate of Recognition issued by York University
  • Ideas and points towards EcoSchool Certification
  • Two days of hands-on workshops and field trips per learning module

All teachers are welcome! A small registration fee per module will apply.
