People for Energy

and Environmental Literacy

Climate science is a critical component of a strong and sustainable Alberta future. 

PEEL works to equip today's educators with the science, the teaching tools and the support they need to ensure Alberta students are fluent in climate change science, clean energy technologies, and sustainability principles.

PEEL uses concrete tools to explain the science behind climate change. It discusses our role and provides opportunities to help students explore tangible solutions. If you’re looking for an activity to change the status quo, look no further.
— Chris Byron, Grade 9 teacher
