2021 EcoSchools Certifications

Please join us in congratulating the schools that achieved certification in the pilot year for EcoSchools in Calgary! Despite the difficult circumstances, these schools completed enough environmental actions to be recognized by EcoSchools Canada for their work.

Together, Calgary EcoSchools completed 95 environmental actions. Collectively they accomplished these milestones:

3.2K hours of outdoor learning, 1.2K Earth Day/Week/Month participants, 734 environmental leaders, 582 trees planted, 1.9k kg waste diverted

Other accomplishments achieved in the Calgary EcoSchools pilot year include:

  • 64 teachers from 40 schools registered on the EcoSchools Canada online platform.
  • Working with our environmental education community, created a list of local resources and programs to support each of EcoSchools' 40 actions.
  • In partnership with the City of Calgary and close to a dozen environmental education partners, delivered a two-day symposium called Hand-in-hand: Working Together Toward a Sustainable Calgary featuring 12 environmental education workshops with a spotlight on Calgary-based environmental and climate initiatives. 340 participants attended, and 237 viewed recordings of the sessions.
