Stories are powerful - they build shared understanding, blend disciplines, and create dynamic experiential learning. Storytelling is an art, and, just like any good story, science is also creative, unpredictable, and open to many interpretations. How can storytelling help us teach sustainability?

Join us for the next SEA conference showcasing authors and multidisciplinary creators, skill-building sessions, educator tools, and peer-to-peer support to change the narrative of environmental education, sciences, art, and hope for the future in New Brunswick.
