Climate Action

Target(s)

  • Improve education, awareness-raising and human and institutional capacity on climate change mitigation, adaptation, impact reduction and early warning.

How our work aligns with the target(s)

  • ACEE’s work focuses efforts through the K‐12 system to foster more informed inquiry about our environment including the way we live on the planet today and key actions to reduce our impact.
  • Through the development of our Connecting Classrooms to Experts project, ACEE will help advance classroom-lead climate action projects by connecting teachers and students to climate and energy experts who can offer the advice and expertise needed to turn these plans into a reality.

“Schools should prepare us for the future, not the past. The future of the world will be built on sustainability. If we learn what sustainable technologies are available when we are in school, we will be able to help shape the future of global sustainability when we graduate.” 

- Quinn, student at Jasper Place high school in Edmonton
