Population Education Workshop

Join the Oxbow Meadows Environmental Learning Center and Population Education for an interactive, 2.5-hour professional development workshop for K-8 educators. Understand global challenges and sustainable solutions through hands-on activities that utilize real world issues and data.

Explore interdisciplinary learning strategies that challenge students to make meaningful associations between individuals, communities, and global issues, while building essential skills in social studies, geography, science, and math. Presented activities use role-playing, representational models, group problem-solving, and simulation games to explore the social and environmental impacts of human population growth.
