In 2020, AYLEEE students came together to review and update the student white paper from 2016 (see below). Students have created a DRAFT 'Supporting Environmental, Climate and Energy Education and Leadership in Alberta Schools' paper that we're hoping to complete by the end of this school year. With the global pandemic and school closures, we are in discussions with teachers and students to determine when they will finalize the document. We are sharing the DRAFT paper for now.
In 2016, over 3000 students worked with ACEE and CGE and outlined recommendations in “Supporting Climate Leadership in Alberta Schools: Recommendations by Students for Alberta's Educational Leaders" which they presented to Education Minister David Eggen and Environment & Parks Minister Shannon Phillips. The report outlines recommendations for curriculum, student learning, school infrastructure, and teacher professional learning. Check out their story on Green Energy Futures.
