We have created the Curriculum for a Sustainable Future and are engaging with Alberta Education
Our schools struggle when it comes to preparing students to tackle environmental challenges. Teachers tell us they want to provide more environmental and energy education but lack the time, confidence and resources.
As more and more students are finding a passion for sustainability, let’s take action together and move environmental education from the margins to the mainstream of education in Alberta.
We offer workshops, webinars, and opportunities to profile programs
We bring educational leaders together to take the next step toward sustainability
We offer programs, workshops, resources, and more!
We provide youth with an opportunity to have their voices heard
A collection of our partners' teaching resources, grants, and P.D. opportunities

What's New at ACEE
Join us on October 22 - 2:00 to 3:30pm MDT for a virtual webinar
How worried are Alberta students about climate change? What do they know about the connections between energy, climate, and the environment? Join us to learn the answers, as we share results from our 2020 polling of 500 Alberta youth, and the focus groups we conducted this year. You’ll have a chance to explore how you can use this information in your own work, advise us on the campaign we're planning to advance environmental, energy, and climate education - and pitch in and help, if you're willing! You’ll also have time to ‘hang out’ with colleagues, and discuss program adaptations during times of COVID.
What is the problem?
We have a big problem in Alberta: our young people lack environmental and energy literacy, knowledge about climate—and hope for the future. When it comes to teaching students how to balance the complexities of stewarding nature, meeting energy demand, reducing greenhouse gases, and creating prosperity – our K-12 education system gets a failing grade.
Alberta teachers tell us they lack quality resources to use in their teaching, and are limited by a curriculum that does not adequately address energy and climate
