Toronto Catholic District School Board

2018 TCDSB Environment Conference


The Toronto Catholic District School Board believes in the critical role that our Catholic schools play in promoting environmental responsibility and in providing leadership and direction for the protection and conservation of the environment.  On March 29, TCDSB EcoSchool students and environment reps congregated at the Ontario Science Centre to celebrate the 2nd annual TCDSB Environment Conference - an ideal opportunity for all to celebrate the many initiatives promoting environmental education as well as environmentally responsible action in the school setting.


Participants were treated to opening remarks from Director of Education Rory McGuckin and Chair of the Board Barbara Poplawski.  The audience received information on the impacts of Climate Change through a workshop facilitated by the Ontario Science Centre, as well as various student-led TED Talk’s focused on environmental sustainability and responsible practices, including: fast fashion, animal habitats and food gardens, waste diversion/water conservation and responsible stewardship of our planet's resources. In addition, participants had a chance to spend some time exploring the Science Centre pavilion.​
