How can I bring my creativity and commitment to bring positive systemic change to my school or community?


“The time will come when my grandchildren will long for the cry of the loon, the flash of the salmon, the whisper of spruce needles or the screech of the eagle. Have I done all I can to keep the air fresh? Have I cared enough about the water? Have I left the eagle to soar in freedom?” Chief Dan George

As renowned anthropologist Margaret Mead exclaimed, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that every has!”

Systemic change for sustainability is required within our entire social framework, and is becoming the next big wave of industry for society. What better place and time for students to become generative, innovative thinkers than by updating food, waste and energy systems in their schools today? Students learn team building skills through brainstorming, collaborating, completing feasibility studies and project planning and the satisfaction of creating real positive change. Schools benefit with sustainable systems that support 21st century values. Innovation is the sign of the times.
