High School Outreach
We are dedicated to inspiring environmental change and social justice in your school. To assist you in enhancing environmental education in your classrooms, we offer a series of dynamic programs that will engage your students beyond the textbook. Whether you need an activity for your Eco-Schools’ conference, Eco-Fair, or to support your classroom curriculum, our programs can assist you in creating a dynamic learning opportunity.
Our virtual lectures by our professors will add something new to your curriculum.
Learn about environmental, geographic, and social justice topics, inspire future interests, and meet SHSM and EcoSchool requirements.
Workshop and Seminar Series
Looking to add a guest speaker to your classroom or eco-conference?
We have developed a series of seminars geared toward inspiring your students to consider post-secondary opportunities in environmental and urban change, learn more about careers in environment, sustainability, and justice, and discover our very own EcoCampus in Costa Rica.
Exhibitor at Your School Fair
Are you planning a virtual conference, an Eco-Fair or a career fair at your school?
Invite Environmental and Urban Change to run a table in your conference’s marketplace to highlight York University’s Environmental and Geography programs or career pathways.
