Needs Assessments

In 2017, ACEE conducted two surveys - one for environmental and energy education and outreach organizations and one for teachers. The organization survey was a needs assessment about their current programs and about climate change education. The teachers survey asked teachers about their needs and challenges for incorporating climate change education into their classroom teaching. This information is being used to help organization's build their capacity for incorporating climate change education and in our work with Alberta's education leaders in helping schools take the next steps toward climate leadership.

Previous Needs Assessments 

In 2011 and 2012, ACEE asked you what you need to deliver environmental education in Alberta. We used the results to:

  • refine the services we offer to environmental educators in Alberta,
  • help you better understand the environmental education community in which you work

“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.”
