Goals & Objectives

  1. Champion environmental education. ACEE will be a voice for the advancement of environmental education, speaking in support of the need for EE and its role in a changing society.
  2. Convene stakeholders. ACEE will convene the EE community, encouraging a variety of strategic conversations, liaisons, networking, actions, and synergistic collaborations between EE groups. Facilitate leadership. ACEE will help create, clarify, and coordinate leadership within the environmental education community.
  3. Build networks. ACEE will develop, encourage and support networks that facilitate the exchange of information and provide opportunities for collaboration within the Albertan EE community.
  4. Increase capacity. ACEE will develop partnerships and mechanisms to build capacity for, and help ensure, the continual improvement of environmental education groups.
  5. Connect the community. ACEE will work with all interested EE providers to promote EE resources, services, and events to the widest possible audience of Albertan educators; and connect Albertan environmental education efforts to relevant national and international networks, resources, and activities.

Current Initiatives

ACEE will steadily increase its capacity to advance environmental education in Alberta. We will ensure that a strategic fund development plan, continuous improvement in administrative management and function, on-going staff training and development, and a dynamic Board means that ACEE is a well-managed, credible, and financially sustainable organization.
