Are you and your students eager for an impactful field trip, and looking for ways to support your local community in a sustainable way? Global Classroom invites you to join us for an inspiring two-part workshop to learn about the concepts of Regenerative Travel and how you can use them to complement your curriculum.
Date: Wednesday, May 11th, 2022
Time: 4:00-5:15PM PT
This workshop is part one of the series and will welcome the Founder & CEO of Global Family Travels, Jennifer Spatz, who will share regenerative principles and some of the impactful Seattle area experiences her company has developed, which feature a unique mix of cultural and educational activities, as well as community engagement to help make a positive impact on the lives of people and natural habitat. Ben Wheeler, curriculum advisor, will also share Sample Curriculum Connections.
Teachers will have the opportunity to discuss regenerative principles in the classroom, and how they might be used to inform curriculum, with discussion centered on what lessons and community projects are possible. Washington State Educators are eligible to receive 1 clock hour for participating in this workshop.

PART TWO (Optional)
(end of May TBD)
For part two of this series, teachers will have the opportunity to participate in one of two Seattle Community Tours later this Spring, which entail a hands-on regenerative learning experience. Please see below for the tour options. We will share more information about registering for these two outings at the workshop on May 11th.
Street Hues: Seattle Urban Art Tour
In partnership with 206 Zulu, Experience Education, and Urbanists, participants on this small group walking adventure in Seattle’s diverse neighborhoods will explore the varied street art, from graffiti, tags, and “sticker bombs” to elaborate spray paint, brush work, and stencil pieces, while guides address topics such as ownership, power, and identity in public art.
The Power of Community Gardens with the Black Farmers Collective
Through our three travel pillars of Learn, Serve and Immerse, this enriching community experience at YES Farm, located in a historic part of Seattle near Yesler Terrace, offers you a powerful way to learn how the Black Farmers Collective has developed some creative solutions to building community through growing food. Guests will also learn some Seattle history and insights to the intersections between urban farming, environmental justice, climate change solutions and food access.
