Environmental Education in Hong Kong with Tyler Holland

presents

Environmental Education in Hong Kong: Defining Goals and Aligning Incentives

with Tyler Holland

on Wednesday, 8 May 2013

Bisous, 9F LKF Tower, 33 Wyndham Street, Central
http://www.bisous.com.hk/

Networking starts at 7:30 and the speakers will start at 8pm

What exactly is “environmental education” and what are its goals? How do the goals and ambitions of “environmental education” change across age groups? How can we merge these goals with the overarching incentives of schools with limited funding, limited time, and a constant need to recruit more students by displaying metrics often unrelated to environmental education? These are some of the questions and challenges faced by En-trak on a daily basis, which our speaker (and co-founder of En-trak) will strive to discuss and answer. Some specific topics will be the failure of ECF projects to achieve their stated goals in terms of environmental education, the importance of various school resources in developing meaningful environmental education programs, and ways forward as we strive to prepare Hong Kong students for a sustainable future.

Our speaker, Tyler Holland, is a co-founder of En-trak, a local social enterprise dedicated to providing schools and students with new and innovative environmental education tools. Tyler created En-trak in response to a greater need for tools that merge environmental impact with educational impact and ensure that schools don’t have to choose between the two when allocating resources. En-trak is also focused on ensuring that students gain locally applicable knowledge that they can practice at a young age, building sustainable habits of action and sustainable habits of mind. Through his work with En-trak, Tyler has worked with dozens of local and international schools across Hong Kong on environmental education programs and activities. You can read more about En-trak at www.en-trak.com.

If you too have something interesting to tell and share please let us know, so that we can consider you for one of the next green drinks. And as always - feel free to bring friends and colleagues and spread the word!

Best wishes
