New Teacher Resources for Mayors Environment Expo

Eco-Leaders is a youth environmental leadership program that helps school-based student teams design and implement an environmental project that aims to solve a real-life problem.

The time commitment is 60 hours over six months, from January to June. Each Eco-Leader class must have a minimum of one lead teacher and one support teacher. Teams will present their findings to Calgary schools and exhibitors at our annual Mayor's Environment Expo in June.
