What's New at ACEE

Give our students a better future

Last year we used polling and focus groups to find out what Alberta students feel and know about environment, energy, and climate.  The results are alarming - and a call to action!  We invite you to view our evidence, and learn what you can do to help shift our education system to better prepare students for the future that they will inhabit, the jobs they’ll create, and the society they’ll build.

The Challenge

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.

We can help. Since 2005 the Alberta Council for Environmental Education has been supporting curriculum and teacher professional development so that we can equip students with the knowledge and skills to be the problem solvers of tomorrow.

Our Solution

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 have created the Curriculum for a Sustainable Future and are engaging with Alberta Education

We offer workshops, webinars, and opportunities to profile programs

 

We bring educational leaders together to take the next step toward sustainability

Over 125 partners shared their educational resources with teachers on our hub

“Schools should prepare us for the future, not the past. The future of the world will be built on sustainability. If we learn what sustainable technologies are available when we are in school, we will be able to help shape the future of global sustainability when we graduate.” 

- Quinn, student at Jasper Place high school in Edmonton
