Environmental Law 101 for High Schools in Alberta

With support from the Alberta Law Foundation, the Environmental Law Centre has launched a pilot program to bring environmental law education into Alberta high schools.


We have partnered with ACEE (Alberta Council on Environmental Education) and teachers from across Alberta to design materials tailored to complement existing Science and Social Studies curriculum. Materials are being developed to be introduced to a select number of students in Fall 2016, with hopes of introducing this critical area of study to 150,000 high school students across Alberta in due course.


This project was a finalist for the 2016 Alberta Emerald Award INNOVATION category.
