Alberta Youth Leaders for Environmental Education

Alberta Youth Leaders for Environmental Education (AYLEE) is a network of youth grades 7-12 from across rural and urban Alberta that demonstrate leadership in environmental and energy education in their schools and communities. ACEE is supporting the students in their work to advocate for more environmental, energy, and climate change education and providing them with opportunities to have their voices heard in Alberta.

Want to hear from AYLEE students?

If you are interested in in hearing from thoughtful, passionate, and well-informed youth, please contact shauna@abcee.org to discuss how we might connect you.

In the past, AYLEE youth have presented at environmental and energy conferences, gatherings of Alberta’s educational leadership, and teachers conventions – and met with Education Minister Adriana LaGrange in March of 2020. Commonly, students share the story of their learning in school, talk about the superior learning outcomes they have experienced through outdoor, environmental, energy, and climate education, and suggest ways in which their audience might collaborate to advance this essential education.

“I value AYLEEE because it gives me an opportunity to have my voice heard and valued. Without AYLEEE I don't think I would have discovered my passion for the environment.”
