Opening Doors, Hearts and Minds
Foster, Andrea
Pathways: The Ontario Journal of Outdoor Education, v19 n2 p7-9 Win 2007
A panel discussion, "Opening Doors, Hearts and Minds," was hosted at the 2006 annual COEO conference. Four dedicated Torontonians shared how they interpret outdoor environmental education and environmental education in what they do and offered suggestions as to how their work might be integrated in diverse urban communities. Tafari Anyika is the founder of Umoja Learning Circle, a community-based African-centred school at Islington and Albion. Yuga Juma Onziga is the founder of the Environmental Centre for New Canadians (ECENECA)--a non-profit organization working to promote nature-based learning with indigenous peoples of the world. Eduardo Garay is a board member of FutureWatch--a non-profit organization devoted to providing support, training and hands-on experiential learning to build capacity and sustain community efforts. And finally, Alison Neilson is a professor of Education at OISE, University of Toronto, and Environmental Studies and Environmental Sociology at Queen's University. This article presents a summary of the panelists' rich presentations.
