Energy Revealed is GreenLearning's energy efficiency and climate action program, designed to make energy visible to students.

ACEE was a partner during the Alberta pilot program.

Leap Into Action! was created by the BC Conservation Foundation and Wild BC for teachers and is full of lesson plans to help prepare, inspire and support students in conducting age-appropriate environmental action projects, including skill-building activities and tools and real-life case studies. It is also a useful guide for programs outside the classroom setting.
