I would like to remind you once again of the upcoming Regional Centre of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) Recognition Event. The event will take place on June 7 from 9:30AM - 2:30PM at the Wascana Centre (2900 Wascana Drive, Regina, Saskatchewan) and will recognize the innovative and creative ways that individuals and organizations are working to advance ESD in Saskatchewan. Sponsors for the event include: APEGS, Conexus Credit Union, The Co-operators, SaskEnergy, Sask Water, SIAST, the University of Saskatchewan, the Wascana Centre and the City of Regina.
The deadline to submit applications for consideration is on May 1. I have once again attached the call for nominations as well as the nomination application form to this email message. I invite you to submit an application for projects that you are working on or other ESD projects that you feel deserve recognition. Possible areas of educational work for sustainable development include:
- Building sustainable communities
- Climate change
- Farming and local food production
- Health and healthy lifestyles
- Reconnecting to natural prairie ecosystems
- Sustainable infrastructure including water and energy
- Cultural adaptation for sustainability
I would appreciate if you could pass this reminder on to others through your email contacts, websites, and listservers. If you are interested in applying for a recognition award but have not yet submitted an application, please send me an email so I know that you are interested. Completed applications can be sent to my e-mail address at the bottom of this message.
