World Scientists highlight need for ACEE’s work in their Warning to Humanity: A Second Notice.

Have you seen the World Scientists' Warning to Humanity: A Second Notice letter? 15,364 scientist signatories from 184 countries signed it, urging ​13 ​steps humanity must take to save the planet​. ​One of those steps is directly linked to environmental education: ​"increasing outdoor nature education for children, as well as ​the overall engagement of society in ​the appreciation of ​nature”.

 

This is your work AND ACEE’s mission. Today is Giving Tuesday, a global day of charity started in 2012. Please consider donating to ACEE to continue advancing environmental education in Alberta.

 

 You can help us increase the quantity and quality of nature education we provide students so they’ll have the skills they need to address all the steps outlined in the World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity.

3% Project is coming to Alberta! Book now to bring this program to your high school.

Three Precent Project provides youth-friendly and holistic education on climate change and renewable energy. Their aim is to educate students and encourage them to exercise the muscle of sustainability problem-solving skills. 3% Project  is going on 5 national tours across Canada to engage 1 million youth in 600 high schools – that’s about 3% of Canada. 70% of our tour route is in rural communities with a population of less than 100,000.

Students collectively determine what the most difficult environmental challenge is in their school. They are then introduced to local NGOs, business leaders, and teachers who can support the students' solutions and provide mentorship.  Request a visit here.
