Reflections On The Eve Of Our Recharge Conference

 


As we all busily prepare for our annual conference, I want to talk about the importance of environmental education, and the importance of our community. And I want to talk about how we can survive and indeed THRIVE, despite the challenges we sometimes feel when doing our work in this province.

ACEE is extremely proud to introduce our brand new thought-provoking short video titled 'Taking the Next Step'.  Find out why K-12 education leaders from across Alberta believe schools should be leading the way toward a sustainable future.
