An environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, and socially just human presence on this planet.  


To educate and empower youth and educators to take positive personal and collective action for a just, sustainable, connected, resilient, and thriving world. 

Our Work 

Be the Change Earth Alliance (BTCEA) is a Vancouver-based, charitable, non-profit organization founded in 2005. BTCEA delivers eco-social education initiatives that engage youth and educators in meaningful learning and action on environmental, social and climate justice. 

Our work aims to help participants: 

  • Take personal and collective action in their homes, schools and communities  
  • Build emotional resilience in the face of ecological and climate breakdown  
  • Think critically, act locally, and embody their values to “be the change” 


We primarily work within the BC public education system, engaging youth and educators (Grades 5-12) in Metro Vancouver and across BC. We aim to create empowering education opportunities for all learners, including equity-deserving groups. In addition, we offer action-oriented education to interested BC communities.
