Seventh Generation Learning Series

“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 is a modular set of presentations and workshops on a variety of sustainability topics. It promotes integrated sustainable living practices in the greater Ottawa area through engaging and informative content. We have two versions of our learning series, one for children and youth, and another one for adults.

Program Descriptions

The Seventh Generation Learning Series includes 5 workshops as part of our learning series.

Simple Living

This workshop is a participatory exploration of ways to simplify your life. Moving at an unprecedented speed physically, mentally and spiritually, we are “stuff-aholics” craving inner peace. With consciousness and creativity, come and clarify simple choices you can begin to integrate into your life immediately. Learn how to live an abundant life while living simply.

Get Energy Smart

This seminar covers easy energy conservation options for people who are interested in becoming greener, but are overwhelmed by all of the information and not sure how to get started. Using a real life case study, we explain how lowering your Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions can actually save you money with little to no financial investment. The focus is on four areas for reducing GHG emissions: Home, Transportation, Food and Consumption/Waste.

Sustainable Food

The choices we make about food can have a significant impact on the planet. This session discusses some of the ways our food production system impacts the environment and how local eating and organic agriculture can mitigate these impacts.

 

 

We also have a learning series for children and youth!
