Advanced Teacher Training

Join Ecosource and York University for our FREE professional development opportunity for educators

Thanks to support from TD Friends of the Environment Foundation, Ecosource and York University are partnering to bring you an innovative teacher certification program. The Approaches to Educating for a Sustainable and Just Future modules provide the tools to empower educators to integrate sustainability education, environmental justice, and climate action into their school communities.

How It Works:

The 2023 program is now closed. The program consisted of a series of live, interactive learning sessions led by Ecosource educators and York University teaching partners. Past module themes included:

Food Systems & Gardening for the Curriculum 

Food Literacy in the Classroom Learning Lab

Centering Indigenous Perspectives in the Classroom

Where Environmentalism Meets Social Justice 

Teacher Allies for Youth Climate Action

Please check back next school year for details about the 2024 program.

To learn more about the program, please email with any questions you may have.

In the Region of Peel, we live and work on the traditional territory and treaty lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. We would like to acknowledge the first inhabitants of these lands and those who continue to live in these regions, including the Anishinabek, Haudenosaunee, Huron-Wendat, Ojibway/Chippewa and Métis peoples.

We occupy colonized First Nation territories and it is our responsibility to recognize our colonial histories, their present-day implications, and to work together to honour, protect and sustain Indigenous rights, and this land.
