Big Idea: Teach the Children Well and Young

This idea introduces outdoor education facilities into school curriculum.
The following networks were identified for this idea:

  • School boards
  • Government
  • Non-government organizations
  • Parents and caregivers

This initiative is about developing and implementing up-to-date curriculum with an environmental focus that includes the creation of outdoor education facilities. Early stages include Great Lakes curriculum, teacher training and full concepts and designs of outdoor education facilities. As this idea expands, it could include developing Great Lakes community service options for students, creating youth ranger positions at outdoor facilities and hosting binational activities to cross-pollinate ideas and share knowledge.
