Registration: LSF's Water Docs at School Program & Forum 2022/2023

Brought to you by Learning for a Sustainable Future (LSF) and Water Docs, WDaS is a free, curriculum-connected community action program that actively engages grade 7-8 students in addressing water issues through authentic inquiry, project-based learning, and video production. This program builds students’ understanding of water and instills in them a commitment to water stewardship.

Previously only connected to Ontario curriculum, we are excited to announce that the program now has curriculum connections to both New Brunswick and Manitoba grades 7-8 curriculum!

The program runs Fall 2022 until Spring 2023. Films will be due May 24, 2023 and will be judged by our panel and recognized with awards for Best Project and Best Film.

Water Docs at School Youth Forum:

This Youth Forum is a recommended (but not mandatory) part of the Water Docs at School Program. Registering for the Youth Forum will register you for the WDaS program as well.

LSF’s Youth Forums are designed to ENGAGE your students in local water issues, EQUIP them with knowledge and skills needed to make change, and EMPOWER them to take action.

    • PD & resources for teachers
    • kickoff event

Student workshops will cover various water issues that impact your community and present ideas and opportunities for students to take action!
