Natural Resources (NAT)

Energy and Environmental Innovation (EEI) (Introductory, Intermediate & Advanced)

Environmental Studies, Climate Change, Energy Industry Studies, Sustainability, Food Production, Wildlife Studies and Ecology. Students will learn how to become innovative change-makers in both their community and their future industries. Students will be exposed to a range of issues, skills and technologies in fields related to:

  • Energy development in Alberta
  • Climate change science
  • Local food and urban agriculture production
  • Community development and urban planning
  • Wildlife and biodiversity habitat conservation
  • Stewardship of protected lands
  • Water and waste management

The course is designed to be experiential for students. Each semester there are several field-study trips offered where students will travel to work with industry experts in the fields mentioned above. Students will experience the outdoors as a key component to the class.

The rest of the course takes place within an interactive lab setting. Students take care of various gardens, living walls and fish tanks while also working on habitat construction, water, soil and core-rock testing and building design processes.

Once students have been immersed in this broad range of topics, they will have the opportunity to innovate new technology, policies, educational programs or designs meant to improve our society economically, socially and environmentally.

Looking for a more hands-on learning environment to complete your Social Studies classes? Social Studies 10, 20-1/20-2 and Social Studies 30-1/30- 2 is also offered in combination with Energy and Environmental Innovation.

EEI is also offered as a Project Design evening course, Thursdays from 6 – 9 pm for approximately 14 weeks each semester.

RT @Indigenous_cbe: Today is fall equinox - a time when daylight & nighttime share the sky equally. Today is also Treaty 7 Day - the 144th anniversary of the signing of Treaty 7.
