Young Learners Webinars

Inspiring Environmental Responsibility in the Young Learner Classroom



Being aware of your impact on the environment, both locally and globally, is an important part of being a responsible global citizen. But for young learners growing up in a digitally-focused global society, the disconnect between their everyday lives and the natural world is greater than ever.

How, then, can educators reconnect students with the environment, motivate them to care, and empower them to protect our planet?

In this webinar, photographer, conservationist, and National Geographic Young Explorer Gabby Salazar will share with you:

  • her unique story
  • her experiences working with children around the world
  • and practical ideas for using photography in the classroom

to help you foster environmental responsibility, raise global awareness, and use photography in your young learner classroom.
