After eight years of working in sustainability education with a growing impact, we are learning more and more about our greatest successes and challenges. Since 2011, we have reached 400 teachers and 20,000 students through our Student Leadership for Change program, resulting in 105,000 actions and 578 tonnes of C02 diverted from the atmosphere. That’s equivalent to about 7 million balloons!
BTCEA is positioned to take our unique action based approach to tackling problems like climate change even deeper into the education system. Our Seeds of Change Campaign is raising funds to help us to tackle the barriers we face in delivering sustainability education to students across BC with our Student Leadership for Change program.
Your support will enable us to implement various approaches for accelerating our impact including making our resources open access and offering professional development opportunities and in-class support for teachers. We hope that we can count on your support us as we continue to empower student leadership for Change.
