We are shining a light on the amazing work being done by students and teachers in Alberta with our celebration of "150 Ways Schools Show Climate Leadership" in Calgary on November 4!
Be part of this exclusive event!
We are inviting 20 teachers and some of their students to attend our celebration. You will have an opportunity to share your project AND learn from the other schools. Education Minister David Eggen will be there along with media, trustees and other educational leadership to see the amazing work being done by students and teachers.
Most students in Alberta are not benefiting from hands-on, engaging, innovative environmental and sustainability projects, we want to change that! By profiling these types of programs, we want to show other teachers and educational leadership the tremendous benefit students receive from this type of learning. Help us move environmental, climate, energy and sustainability education from the margins to the mainstream.
When: Saturday November 4, 2017.
Time: 9:00am - 2:30pm
Where: Career and Technology Centre, Lord Shaughnessy High School, Calgary
