The EYES Project

"The EYES Project, founded in 2004, is a Canadian not-for-profit organization committed to promoting environmental and sustainability education. Through the design and delivery of innovative professional development initiatives for educators and engaging learning experiences for youth, we believe sustainable living practices can emerge.

"Our Mission is to foster a more socio-ecological consciousness in today's society through promoting the values, knowledge and skills of sustainable community building as priorities in the education of youth.

"Our Vision is to empower young citizens to embrace a triple bottom line imperative, in which environmental, social and economic well-being become pillars of a sustainable future.

"Our Approach, through a collaborative spirit, is to work at a bioregional, 'on the ground' level with practicing educators, students, and existing environmental education organizations to provide a meaningful context to emerging provincial, national, and international sustainable development education policies and curricula."
