EcoLeague® focuses on youth as the drivers of change and leaders of tomorrow.
Through EcoLeague, students are engaged in linking what they have learned to Action Projects that provide a real context for understanding sustainability issues in their community. Undertaking Action Projects allows youth to understand that they do have the ability to bring about positive and significant change in their schools and communities.
EcoLeague Youth Forums engage Action Teams (1-2 teachers and 5 students) from participating schools in a region in a full day of learning and action. The Forums inspire youth and their teachers with hands-on Action Project ideas that they can undertake in their school and community. To date, LSF has delivered over 60 Youth Forums, engaging close to 2,000 schools and over 1,000,000 students in sustainability Action Projects. Registration for the 2019/2020 EcoLeague Youth Forums is now open!
LSF provides funding of up to $400 to schools to implement an Action Project. Action Projects must: increase awareness about sustainability issues and responsibilities; directly engage students in actions that address a local sustainability issue; and involve and benefit the school and/or local community.
*2019/2020 Applications are now closed. Stay tuned in the new year for your grant review response*
LSF has developed a series of “recipes for action” which provide teachers and students with Action Projects on eight different sustainability issues. Click the 'Elementary' and/or 'Secondary' tabs from the menu bar above to find a recipe tailored for your grades!
