NEW – Environmental Actions Program

TEPF is pleased to launch and offer this exciting new environmental program to schools throughout Alberta. We know that environmental excellence and energy reduction is of paramount importance to all Albertans.  Our goal is to help build environmental literacy through student-led programs or initiatives in order to equip our future environmental stewards with the skills to tackle complex environmental challenges.

The “Environmental Actions” Program will grant up to $1000 for schools running student-led projects and programs that have a measurable positive and sustainable environment or energy reduction impact. This program is designed to help students initiate and run environmental projects year after year. Some examples include establishing and maintaining composting and recycling programs, growing community gardens, pursuing the installation of solar panels, water and energy conservation initiatives.

Successful Environmental Action initiatives are shared on TEPF’s website and social media channels so that all communities can benefit and strive to promote responsible decision-making and positive behaviour changes.

Environmental Action Guidelines:

  1. Initiatives must be led by students
  2. Projects must be environment or energy conservation focused and have a positive, measurable and sustainable impact in the school and/or community
  3. Funding is available to schools, once per school year
  4. Travel costs or speaker honorariums cannot be funded
  5. To share the positive environmental story and collect measurable outcomes, approved applicants must answer a TEPF survey once a year.

Note: The Environmental Actions program will be replacing the Citizenship in Action program. The Citizenship in Action program will be closed permanently on June 30, 2018
