Sustainability at EREA
Join an EChO across EREA Community of Practice in 2020
We've started to intentionally build an ecosystem of care for our common home across EREA by bringing educators together to share, upskill and shape the shift our planet needs. Join in.

As part of the soon to be announced Strategic Directions for 2020-2024, EREA is committed to enabling an ecological paradigm shift. To support this transformation, we will be leading an Integral Ecology Project (IEP) to run across the life span of this strategic directions cycle. The first phase of the IEP will focus on engaging a variety of groups across the national EREA community throughout 2020. A critical group to engage will be the EChO across EREA Communities of Practice.

Following on from the initiating EChO across EREA Communities of Practice in the Southern and Northern Regions, we are looking to continue to build our eco-system of care by inviting expressions of interest from educators across EREA.

If you're passionate about co-creating the shift in education to care for our one common and recious home, then join the collective of like-minded educators and be part of co-creating an eco-system of care across EREA.

Please note that the scheduling and location for the EChO across EREA Community of Practice is subject to change, depending upon the level of interest and location (ie, where the interest comes from). If we receive suitable interest, we plan on running the Eastern CoP in Term 1, the Western CoP (SA) in Term 2 and the Western (WA) in Term 3. If interests warrants, we will also seek to coordinate CoP's in Southern and Northern Region as well.

What’s involved in being a part of an EChO across EREA Community of Practice?

  • 3 face to face meetings with other educators interspersed with research and reflective learning activities
  • Sharing your insights and perspectives to help EREA better understand how we can work together to support an ecological shift
  • Practicing new ways of thinking and being that can support and enable an ecological paradigm shift.
  • Engagement with insights from thought leaders in the fields of sustainability, ecological justice, eco-theology and spirituality.
Outcomes we aim for:

Build capacity of educators to support an ecological shift within their school community

Deepen an awareness of integral ecology and the implications it holds for the education we seek to provide

Create a community of practice within the region that can sustain itself and link to other communities of practice across the wider EREA national community.
