This 1-day workshop consists of 2 parts that sit within the Becoming Eco Smart suite of workshops
Bringing sustainable change to an early education community can be very rewarding, but also frustrating. In this session, participants will unpack the Head Heart and Hands model for sustainable transformation. Consider why living more sustainably is critical for our Planet and how this might be actioned beyond compost and worm farms.
In this section of the workshop, we will identify factors of wellness for people and the planet as an essential element within our work in early childhood communities. Utilising several resources including The World Happiness Report, we will consider what wellness could look like and how well we are. We will also discuss the competencies children need to engage and thrive in a well world and explore strategies to help children gain these competencies while recognizing the cultural and historical aspects of each community.
