We want to shine a light on your sustainability/environmental projects as part of ‘150 ways Schools show Climate Leadership’, our celebration of Canada’s 150th. Add a leaf to our climate leadership 'tree' by submitting your class or school's environmental stewardship actions or learning activities/projects.
Any teacher that shares their project will be entered in a draw for a $50 MEC Gift Card - we will be drawing 5 names. We'll invite 20 teachers and some of their students to the celebration on November 4, 2017 in Calgary.
If you have any questions, please contact Christina at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to our sponsors for making this event possible including the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th and Alberta Beverage Container Recycling Corporation.
In the fall of 2017 and winter of 2018, we will be hosting full day sessions in communities across Alberta that will dive deep into best practices for climate education and outreach and give you the time to consider how you can begin incorporating these practices into your programs.

The Climate and Environment Student Action Challenge invites Alberta students from kindergarten to grade 12 to develop a school-based initiative or project that will address climate change or minimize other negative human impacts to the environment.
Students are invited to submit their project idea for a chance to win one of 10 grants (maximum of $1,000) that can be used to turn their proposal into a reality – and give them hands-on experience tackling an environmental issue that directly impacts them, their school or their community. Successful applicants will be selected from each school level (Division 1, 2, 3, 4). Deadline for applications is October 31.
