What happens when student activists, quality children’s literature, and educators committed to the environment intersect? SU’s very own EnviroKids Literacy Festival! In collaboration with the Nature Generation and public-school partners, students and faculty from the Department of Early & Elementary Education will host this unique conference in October 2021. The festival will include a virtual reception and award ceremony for esteemed Green Earth Book Award winning authors; a virtual celebration of their works with teachers and school children; as well as a professional development workshop for educators, librarians, and citizen scientists. Thanks to the assistance of the Educators for Social Justice student club, the EnviroKids Literacy Festival will inspire multiple audiences how to foster environmental justice, literacy, and stewardship in our classrooms and communities. Your generous donation will allow us to pay stipends for guest speakers and put books in the hands of children!
