    2019 THINK & EAT GREEN @ SCHOOL - T.E.G.S.

    May 27, 2019


    2019 Think&EatGreen@School Summer Institute

    Food: People, Place, Possibilities

    TEGS will host a three-day Summer Institute on 3-5 July 2019.  Registration is now open here.  The TEGS website thinkeatgreen.ca is a home base for information about the Institute.

    The theme of this year's Summer Institute is "Food: People, Place, Possibilities."  Through three days of workshops, plenary sessions, shared meals, and networking, participants will have the opportunity to explore a variety of school food systems topics, including gardening across seasons, food preparation, messaging around food, and youth engagement.  While integrating food systems into curriculum will be a thread running throughout the Institute, curriculum and classroom activity development will be the focus of several sessions. Throughout the Institute, participants will have the opportunity to share, reflect on, and strengthen teaching and learning practices surrounding food systems.

    We'll be highlighting the speakers and facilitators on the Summer Institute webpage in the coming weeks!

    The Institute will begin at approximately 8:30am each morning with a light breakfast, and end at approximately 3:30 each afternoon. Most activities will be based on or near UBC’s central campus, a short walk from both of the campus bus loops and the Health Sciences parking garage.  Lunch and a light breakfast each day are included in registration, and coffee, tea and snacks will be available.

    Early bird registration is $82 all-inclusive (anticipated closing is 5 June, after which there may be a price increase).  Discount codes are available both for participants from school teams who received TEGS grants in 2018-2019, and for participants who attend with one or more colleagues from the same school.  If you have questions about the Institute, please contact Think&EatGreen@School Project Assistant Raihan at raihan.hassen@ubc.ca.​
