In Canada, early June is Environment Week. This includes Canada Clean Air Day on June 3rd and World Environment Day on the 5th. This is a great time to work the health of our planet into your learning plan so I wanted to share some great resources with you so that you can plan ahead.
This years Environment Day theme is “Biodiversity” and is being hosted by Colombia in partnership with Germany. (Last year we were the host!)

Environment Week is a wonderful time for kids and adults alike to learn about our planet. From the tinniest insects, to the air we breath, we’re all connected. We can do better than we have at taking care and part of that is raising the next generation of eco-warriors, animals lovers, global citizens, and gentle hearts.
Happy Canadian Environment Week!
