The Canadian Geoscience Education Network (CGEN) is the education arm of the Canadian Federation of Earth Sciences.
CGEN is a national network of more than 500 people, located all over Canada, involved in earth science education and outreach. The membership is pretty well split between K-12 teachers and professionals working in all sectors of the earth sciences.
CGEN acts as a forum for discussion of matters related to geoscience education in Canada. Since programs related to education in schools are best delivered on a local scale, CGEN is a collective of grassroots activists who deliver programs in their local areas.
CGEN undertakes initiatives that can only be conducted on the national scale and raises funds to support grassroots activities.
The CGEN executive is currently in the process of gathering resources for this website.
