Environmental Educator | Youth Advocate | Community Innovator
How can we engage today’s youth to effect positive social change? What does education for sustainability mean? How can we build inter-generational learning communities that mobilize knowledge and solution-oriented ideas? In her captivating talks, environmental educator Lisa Glithero sets out to answer these questions for audiences, inspiring individuals and organizations alike to commit to greener practices at home and in the workplace.
Glithero teaches at the Faculty of Education at the University of Ottawa and is the chair of the Education Advisory Committee for Students on Ice, a non-profit that takes high school and university-aged students on expeditions to the Polar Regions.
A recipient of the “Women of the Earth Award” from the Yves Rocher Foundation for her work in environmental education, Glithero was also named as one of Chatelaine magazine’s “Amazing Canadian Women to Watch.” In 2016, she was awarded a Meritorious Service Medal from the Governor General of Canada for her work in environmental education and youth engagement.
