Create a legacy of sustainability

When a team of teachers comes through our program, the ROI is a radically improved future. They are able to launch and grow a sustainability program at their school more quickly and share the environmental lessons learned with hundreds of students per year. Over 10 years, thousands of students gain sustainability knowledge, systems thinking skills and a mindset for advocacy. The impact grows exponentially as the CELF sustainability message spreads to other teachers, administrators, parents and the community at large.


"This was the best professional development experience I have had as an educator! I am walking away with a wealth of new knowledge and skills to incorporate into my own teaching and the habits and mindsets of my school.
