Environmental Law 101 for High Schools in Alberta

 

AlbertaEnviroLaws website is a project of the Environmental Law Centre. This project has been generously funded by the Alberta Law Foundation.

 

The content of this website is intended to be a resource for high school teachers and students in Alberta interested in learning and teaching more about environmental law and environmental issues in Alberta.

 

The website is a self-learning resource for high school students and teachers. It is divided into nine modules. Website visitors can pace themselves as they continue through the modules and “self-test” their learning at the end of each module. The website also serves as an excellent resource for Albertans who are interested in learning more about environmental issues and the law in Alberta.

 

As well, this website can serve as a supplement to both the science and social studies curriculum, providing important background and resources about environmental law in Alberta.

 

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