Students challenged to develop green initiatives

The Climate and Environment Student Action Challenge is back for the 2018/19 school year, and it’s up to you to take action! Alberta students from kindergarten to Grade 12 can apply for up to $1,000 from Alberta Environment and Parks to make their environmental action projects a reality.

The Student Action Challenge asks Alberta students to develop initiatives or projects that promote healthy environments and ecosystems or reduce carbon emissions. The program encourages stewardship in Alberta youth as they gain hands-on experience tackling environmental issues that directly impact them, their schools or their communities. Plan a project for the school year, make it happen and share your results with Alberta.
