In four weeks we’ve raised just over $15,000 of our $25,000 goalSo far eighty people of our 100 person goal have contributed

Will you donate and help us reach our target? We need your help to continue this amazing work! Canadian tax receipts are issued for all donations over $10.

What work, you ask? And why?

We asked a few community members to chime in and let us know what BTCEA means to them.

We NEED this education because… “we need to foster a sense of care for the environment in the next generation of children.” -Youth Leader Salina Kung

BTCEA’s role in my community is… “to support each of us to be the change necessary to bring about a world that is environmentally sustainable, socially just and spiritually fulfilling. That is a huge part of its genius, since our fragmented world deeply needs more holistic approaches.” - Past BTCEA Board member Kate Sutherland

BTCEA’s curriculum is a vital element in schools because… “it is a catalyst to change and engages youth to build a knowledge base, extend their learning, ultimately engaging in a worthy cause and making a difference.” - Teacher Denise North

I remember when… “I attended my first BTCEA symposium, for the first time I felt that there was hope for our current and future generations because there are others who truly care about our environment and want a more sustainable future. The event was an eye opener and empowering experience that allowed me to understand that regardless of our differences as individuals we can make a difference in our society by speaking up and taking action.” - BTCEA Intern Flora Lin 

We need this type of education RIGHT NOW because…  “Teenagers often just need a nudge to get out of their comfort zone and engage in something that makes a difference within themselves and/or within their community; that’s the essence of SLS.  We can never underestimate how students are today’s leaders; they have the ability, and energy, to make a difference once given a chance.” - Teacher Denise North
