Simon Jackson - Environment & Literacy
The world needs a generation of environmentally literate citizens – a cohort that understands and appreciates the value of nature. By deconstructing the complex and enlivening the obscure, we have the tools to create a nation that thinks critically about how to balance the needs of people and the environment. We just need the desire.
Join keynote speaker Simon Jackson, founder of the Spirit Bear Youth Coalition at the age of 13, for a fascinating discussion about the necessity of environmental literacy. Winner of the Hero for the Planet Award given by Time Magazine for his environmental advocacy, Simon inspires audiences to realize the “power of one” to encourage change and challenge participants to rethink tackling complex environmental issues.
Cofounder of Nature Labs, a virtual storytelling textbook that helps students build natural literacy, a keynote from Simon is an unmissable opportunity for educators of all levels. On November 27, make sure to grab a warm drink and tune into an inspirational keynote on us, followed by an interactive Q&A session with Dr. Alec Couros.
