The 2021 RISE Webinar Series is a follow up to last year’s popular series. While the pandemic makes it impossible to gather and learn together in person, we are able to learn together online. It also means teachers from across the province, as well as the general public, can attend and hear about the variety of sustainable education projects, initiatives and activities that are happening around Manitoba. And hopefully apply them at their school or in their community!

Webinar #5: Outdoor Education Program in Waywayseecappo First Nation with Erik Mentuck

Many projects are happening in Waywayseecappo and outdoor education is one of them, thanks to the visioning of Outdoor Educator Eric Mentuck.

Learn how Eric provides “on the land” learning opportunities that promote lifelong physical activity, cultural teachings, language, diabetes awareness, and connection to the land. Learn how these activities instilled a love for nature by youth and encouraged outdoor physical activity on mountain bikes and bike trails in the community!

He will share his journey through an informative, creative visual presentation that will engage and enlighten the audience about his current projects and future plans in Waywayseecappo First Nation. There will be a Q&A session afterward.

Recognizing Indigenous Sustainable Education (RISE) is about promoting sustainability through Manitoba’s First Nation schools and communities with a focus on waste reduction. Teachers from across Manitoba participate to learn about sustainable environmental practices and waste reduction efforts. Educators are able to apply this knowledge within their classrooms, schools and communities in the hopes of affecting long-term change through action-oriented projects or programs.
