What is EcoSchools?

EcoSchools Canada is a certification program for K-12 schools that nurtures environmental learning and climate action, available for free to all publicly funded Alberta Schools. Classrooms, environmental clubs, or entire school populations work together to complete EcoSchools actions and earn points on the EcoSchools Canada online app, which helps you measure and record your environmental impact. Earn enough points during the year and your school will be awarded with bronze, silver, gold, or platinum level certification. To learn more, visit our FAQ or registration guide.
