CBE EcoSites is an initiative owned by the Calgary Board of Education aimed at encouraging, recognizing and celebrating environmental learning in our schools.
To become a CBE EcoSite means that your school is advancing citizenship in your students, and embedding learning in the environment, about the environment, and for the environment. The initiative strives to encourage schools to take action to reduce our environmental footprint, to get students outdoors in natural environments, and learn about important environmental concerns relevant to student interest.
CBE EcoSites recognizes schools by through providing: a banner to hang in your school; a small grant to provide learning opportunities to your students; and professional development/teaching and learning resources for teachers.
