Encouraging signals in Alberta Education's 15 June announcement on new curriculum

On 15 June, ACEE was pleased to join some of Alberta's educational leadership, upon the invitation of the Education Minister. The Minister announced the launch of Education's work on K-12 curriculum development.
                                                   
ACEE has worked hard to position K-12 environmental and energy education as an important solution to climate change, and we were really pleased to hear the Minister flag climate change as a key issue that must be dealt with in the new curriculum, along with the related topic of environmental stewardship.  We applaud this approach - and we're very hopeful that Education's dedicated staff take full advantage of our Curriculum for a Sustainable Future, a document that proposes relevant student learning outcomes for literacy around environment, energy and climate change.

Here's some interesting media stories that mention climate change:
