Meeting with the Lieutenant Governor and upcoming workshop mark the latest activities of our Regional Centre of Expertise

Kawartha Lakes -- On September 22, Lieutenant Governor Elizabeth Dowdeswell visited with members of the Peterborough-Kawartha-Haliburton Regional Centre of Expertise (RCE) Leadership Group at Camp Kawartha’s Environment Centre. Her Honour was formerly the Executive Director for the United Nations Environment Programme and took a special interest in the Sustainability Education work of our RCE. She was welcomed by Chief Phyllis Williams of Curve Lake and heard about sustainability education initiatives from youth, educators and community members from the City of Kawartha Lakes, Haliburton and Peterborough.
Prior to the meeting with the Lieutenant Governor, regional participants talked about sustainability education priorities. As a follow up to that discussion, a special introductory workshop focused on infusing Indigenous Knowledge and Nature Based Education into early years and Kindergarten to Grade 12 Education as well as Outdoor Education programs will take place this Saturday October 28. These themes reflect the top 2 long-term objectives for our Regional Centre of Expertise and we are seeking input into an RCE Action Plan for 2018 in these areas.
