Hello,

I would like to invite members of RCE Saskatchewan to the Student Action for a Sustainable Future student tradeshow on April 15 in Saskatoon. Our eleven classes of grade 4-8 students from Saskatoon’s Catholic and Public School Divisions have been working hard on their action projects, focusing on areas such as waste, water, energy, food, and transportation. Not only are students engaged in their learning, they are also reducing greenhouse gas emissions and leading to other sustainability benefits in their classrooms, schools, households, and the community at large. Please see the attached letter for more details on the Students Action for a Sustainable Future program.

I welcome you and your colleagues to attend our event to see the exciting results and meet our hard working students! Kindly RSVP by providing the names of those who wish to attend to Shannon.dyck@saskatoon.ca.

The University of Regina is hosting a day to profile new projects related to ecomuseums, living laboratories and community engagement, and provide a forum for networking. The event will take place on May 8, 2014 at Government House in Regina.  We expect that representatives from higher education, communities, and the public, private, and voluntary sectors will attend.  We would ask that each Higher Education partner of the RCE-SK send up to five representatives, representing a cross section of their organization.  We are hoping to have delegates that represent teaching, research, students, facilities, administration, and sustainability officers.
