Students On Sustainability is a joint initiative between the Alberta Council for Environmental Education and a dedicated group of University of Calgary students. We are offering free, curriculum aligned, engaging classroom presentations on topics surrounding sustainability and climate change to Calgary classrooms this semester.
The Alberta Narratives Project is a new approach to public engagement research that builds skills and better energy-climate communications. The project aims to uncover language and narratives that reflect the values and identities of Albertans, and to find ways of talking about climate change and energy that can build bridges to better conversations.
This is an amazing opportunity to learn social science research skills that you can apply immediately with the individuals and organizations you work with. Learn more here: https://albertaecotrust.com/climateconnect/
Environmental educators from coast to coast to coast have been working on a Petition to Parliament to support Canada taking a leadership role in enacting a Canadian strategy that supports environmental education.
