Sign the Environmental Education Petition to Parliament

At recent meetings of EECOM, the North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE), and the World Environmental Education Congress (WEEC), a group of EECOM members and Canadian educators considered the need for a more organized national focus on environmental and sustainability education. Through a process involving many practitioners, scholars, and students, and through the offices of the Leader of the Green Party of Canada, Elizabeth May MP, a petition has been produced that can be presented to the House of Commons.

Clean Foundation’s EnviroEd program brings a team of environmental superheroes, puppets and scientists to inspire kids and teens of all ages to become advocates for a sustainable future – a future that will be in their hands. Younger children engage with interactive, puppet-centered theatre presentations, where humour, rhymes, and songs give them the tools and confidence to make a difference in their world. Clean Water and Clean Energy Schools give teachers and older children hands-on opportunities to explore innovative technologies and the impact their choices can make on the climate change challenge. Click here to find out why EnviroEd is much more than a special guest parachuting into a classroom!

La fondation Clean a pour but d’inspirer les enfants et ados à penser au dévelopement durable et à protéger l’environnement. Diverses sujects sont présentés en classe par des animateurs scientifiques, des superhéros et des marionettes, le tout dans une ambiance amusante. Pour plus d’information, visiter

October 18 – 21, 2018, Ktunaxa Nation, BC Rockies

From coast to coast, over 300 educators will have the opportunity to gather to learn, share and connect at this made-in-Canada environmental education conference.

The theme for the 2018 Conference, Classrooms to Communities (C2C), envisions students and teachers being deeply connected to place, community and planet, are able to effectively communicate their stories of connectedness, and are taking responsibility to do so. This conference is intentionally taking place at St. Eugene Mission Resort, the site of a former residential school that is now owned and operated by the Ktunaxa First Nation as a vehicle for education, reconciliation and economic development.
