Why Environmental Educators Should Get involved with Ecoschools

The Ecoschools Canada Program seeks to build on, rather than replace, the wonderful array of existing climate and environmental education resources and programs available to Alberta teachers. By creating a common framework and path forward that all schools can see themselves in, we hope to draw greater attention to environmental and climate education and action and thus, increase demand for the many existing programs that support this. 

We invite our environmental education partners to become part of the EcoSchools Canada network by linking their programs to EcoSchools Canada's extensive menu of actions so teachers and students can easily access the locally available supports that will help them achieve their environmental stewardship and climate action goals.

How to get involved

If you would like to have your programs or resources featured as part of the EcoSchools certification framework, please consider one of the following actions. 

1) Attend a virtual information session to learn more about EcoSchools and how we can profile your program. We're offering two sessions in July. To register, click on the date of your choice:

July 15, 11 a.m. - 12 p.m.

2) If you can't make a virtual session, listen to a recording of a similar session from Spring 2020 to learn more. 

3) Email us information about your program. 

If you sent us information last year, please review the information in this spreadsheet and make any required changes or additions. There are six new actions being added this year (highlighted in the spreadsheet), so please add information related to these new actions, where applicable.
