Forest Smart: PLT Canada’s Forest Literacy Framework

Danika Strecko, PLT Canada’s Senior Manager of Education, presented on the new Forest Literacy Framework.

The Forest Literacy Framework charts a pathway for those who educate young people (in formal or informal settings), create education policy or curricula, or advocate for forests.

During the session, participants explored three ways to engage young learners in the free bilingual resource:

  • By engaging questions
  • By age and grade level
  • By hot topic

“It’s critical that we, as a society, learn to see and understand these values. Building this awareness requires a broad approach that includes youth, consumers, advocates, economists, scientists, teachers, and many others involved in the forest and conservation sector. Understanding our connection to trees needs to start at an early age and grow throughout our lives”
