Making The Shift is a monthly newsletter to share stories, resources, and ideas around environmental education through inquiry-based learning. Let's collaborate!

Welcome to our Special Edition Newsletter!

Our new website is an online forum for educators, supporters, and Environmental Inquiry enthusiasts to learn, be inspired, and get connected to one another, and to valuable resources that can be used in a variety of contexts.
We invite you to take time to navigate through this useful new tool!
