Wanted: High school teachers for ongoing consultation
Type: consultation / vol
Organization: Reimagine Agriculture
Location: anywhere in Canada
We are hoping to connect with teachers at high schools from across Canada to help us assess and edit our work in knowledge mobilization so it can be best used by educators. The commitment would involve reviewing video scripts and drafts and providing general feedback for our ideas and direction.
About Reimagine Agriculture:
We founded Reimagine Agriculture because we saw the opportunity to address pressing agricultural issues that are not currently being given enough attention in Canada. The farming sector is often overlooked in the critical and ongoing conversations surrounding waste and climate change. As agricultural waste and demand for meat, dairy, eggs and other products of animal agriculture continue to grow worldwide, their contributions to the already dire effects of climate change will worsen. Applying our expertise to these critically overlooked issues, Reimagine Agriculture is committed to reducing the negative impacts of these systems, building the changes in Canada that are needed throughout the world.
We accomplish these goals through the primary use of education, resources and support, and policy change. This can be in the form of presentations to various age groups and organizations, national campaigns with democratic engagement, and working with related stakeholders. Our focus is on being effective, using evidence-based reasoning and meeting people where they are. Learn more about us at reimagineagriculture.org
Our Knowledge Mobilization pillar is created to educate students on the complexities and issues of the agricultural system in an effective and evidenced-based manner. We strive to design our materials for longterm learning and retention. In this, we work with educators to ensure we are implementing programs that can be helpful in their work and actually used in the classroom.
We are hoping to talk to individuals teaching in high schools across disciplines. Interested individuals can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with their interest and relevant experience.
