The Alberta Council for Environmental Education
The Alberta Council for Environmental Education (ACEE) works collaboratively to advance environmental education in Alberta - because educating today's youth to be tomorrow's environmental stewards is our best strategy to create a sustainable future.
We collaborate with teachers, education providers, parents, and students to help youth become aware of the environment, gain an understanding of it, consider environmental issues, and act to create a sustainable future.
We offer a variety of programs, resources and professional development to support teachers, including:
Workshops - ACEE staff have decades of experience in delivering professional development workshops, from one-hour workshops to multi-day sessions. Whether you're interested in fun environmental activities to do in your schoolyard or engaging students in learning about energy and climate change, we have something for everyone AND every grade level.
Recharge 2020 - a conference about energy and environmental education. At Recharge, teachers and educators will come together for three incredible days of professional development, indoor and outdoor workshops and ample networking opportunities in the beautiful Canadian Rockies. Join us April 16-18, 2020 at the Coast Hotel and Conference Center in Canmore.
The Resource Hub - your one-stop tool for finding new resources, programs, professional development, and grants to support environmental and energy education in your classroom
Connecting Classrooms to Professionals - a program that matches classrooms with working professionals in various fields to help advance learning in topics surrounding climate, energy, the environment, and sustainability.
Energy Revealed - a national learning initiative that brings real-world energy monitoring and management into the hands of students, teachers and facility managers. This cross-curricular, multi-grade, experiential learning program leverages installed and plug-in energy monitoring technology to provide practical, hands-on opportunities with real-life applications.
Calgary Schools for Climate Action - a new initiative that seeks to engage Calgarys K-12 school community in local, yet globally referenced, climate education, action, and citizenship using the Citys Climate Resilience Strategy, the EcoSchools Canada environmental certification program, and the United Nations Agenda 2030 as visions and organizing frameworks.
We also support students through our Alberta Youth Leaders for Environmental and Energy Education (AYLEEE) program. AYLEEE is a student group from grades 7-12 across rural and urban Alberta that demonstrate leadership in environmental and energy education in their schools and communities. ACEE and the Centre for Global Education are supporting the students in their environmental education projects and providing them with opportunities to have their voices heard by decision-makers in Alberta.
