“In every deliberation, we must consider the impact on the seventh generation… even if it requires having skin as thick as the bark of a pine.”
– Constitution of the Iroquois Nation, The Great Binding Law
The Tucker House Seventh Generation Learning Series for Kids is a modular set of presentations and workshops on a variety of sustainability topics. They promote sustainable living practices for children and youth in the greater Ottawa area through engaging and informative content.
The Seventh Generation Learning Series for Kids includes 4 workshops as part of our learning series. The following workshops are meant to equip future leaders to address increasing ecological concerns and to build toward a sustainable future. Some of these workshops are offered in both french and english. See the descriptions of the workshops below:
