Environmental Education

The Ottawa-Carleton District School Board is committed to delivering effective environmental education and modeling environmentally responsible practices. The Board and the District encourages staff, students and the school community to learn about, advocate for and follow environmentally sustainable practices.

Teaching and Learning

Environmental education enables students to develop the knowledge and skills they need to be environmentally active and responsible citizens and to apply their knowledge and skills cooperatively to effect long-term change.

Student Engagement and Community Connections

Student engagement involves the active participation of all students in sustainable environmental practices, a strong student voice in decision making, and involvement in the school and community in meaningful ways.


Environmental Leadership

By exercising environmental responsibility in its operations, the District serves as a model of corporate citizenship for students and the broader community and ensures consistency with the environmental messages conveyed in the curriculum.
