Navigate Leadership Project

Education doesn’t stop at the summit!

“I learned that we can make a difference and our goals are possible.” – Kate, student participant

“My mind has been buzzing the entire weekend here because of the many solutions we could put into action in the future to help the environment” Pascale, student participant

Think about ways your team can be ambassadors in your school and community and share your passion for Alberta’s environment with your school, community, province or even country by developing and implementing a unique environmental leadership project.

After you attain knowledge and experience from Navigate it’s up to you and your team to put your ideas into action. Project possibilities are limitless: create a presentation, hold a water stewardship day, create a video, mentor younger students or build on an existing school project.

Project possibilities are limitless: create a presentation, hold a water stewardship day, create a video, mentor younger students, improve your school’s water footprint or build on an existing school project.

Your project is a meaningful education and action plan to engage your school and community in what your team has experienced at the summit. The guidelines below are some key things to consider. The goal of the project is for your teams to promote water and climate education and stewardship. Think about ways your team can be ambassadors in your school and community. Some helpful items to keep in mind while you work on the project:

  • Who will be your audience and what is the best way to share the summit with them?
  • Does your project connect directly or indirectly to water and climate topics discussed at the summit?
  • How will your project promote positive environmental stewardship behaviours?
  • Is your project student-led? (From experience we know that these projects are the most successful)
  • How will you know if your project has been a success?
  • Have you set achievable goals and timelines?
  • Most importantly, is your team motivated and inspired by the project?

The sky is the limit! Be as creative as you wish!
