Who We Are
Be The Change Earth Alliance is a Vancouver-based charitable organization that empowers individual and collective change for a resilient, just, connected, and sustainable world.
What We Do
Be The Change Earth Alliance provides interactive educational programming that engages citizens in understanding their role in fostering global sustainability solutions.
Be The Change Earth Alliance currently fulfills our mandate through providing curriculum resources, professional development and capacity building opportunities for teachers and students, and environmental education services to schools, school districts, and municipalities.
Our Mission is to create new and innovative spaces for holistic sustainability learning in the education system through:
a. developing and delivering school programs & resources for educators, learners and partners
b. fostering a community of leaders through capacity building and tools to support change
Currently, our core programs being offered are SLS: Student Leadership in Sustainability and Citizens of the Future. BTCEA also provides specific educational programming on waste, connected to our Waste Watchers program.
What We Believe
We believe that when an individual's passion for action is activated, they shift their behavior and lead meaningful sustainability changes in their homes, schools, workplace and communities. We believe that a collective of engaged and activated citizens have the power to shift cultural norms, creating a more sustainable future.
What We Have Achieved
Since 2011, the SLS program has been taught by 382 teachers in 98 schools, engaging over 17,000 students in taking over 100,000 sustainability actions. BTCEA has steered and participated in many community and district collaborations, enhancing the impact of environmental education.
