ARTS IN EARLY CHILDHOOD SUSTAINABILITY AND NATURE EDUCATION PEDAGOGY GOING GREEN IN EARLY CHILDHOOD: AN INTRODUCTION TO EVERYDAY SUSTAINABILITY 3 hours NQS Areas: 1, 3 and 7 This workshop is an opportunity to explore the underlying thinking and ethics of actively engaging with sustainability, both personally and professionally. Participants will be supported to build a collective understanding and ‘vision’ for their service. The collective ‘vision’ will become the foundation for the action plan to shift the culture of the service community. Sustainability initiatives including green purchasing, reducing plastics and increasing engagement with natural materials will be investigated. These initiatives can reflect our commitment to the wellness of each other, the earth and its systems of which we are an integral part. A hands-on ‘Nature Play’ session will conclude the workshop. Completing Going Green in Early Childhood will contribute 3 hours of registered PD addressing 3.7.2, 6.3.2 and 7.4.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
