About Us

Founded in 1985, Inside Education is Alberta’s largest environmental and natural resource education charity. Working from offices in Edmonton and Calgary, our mandate is to support K-12 school teachers across Alberta and inspire their students when it comes to working towards a balanced, sustainable future for our environment, economy, and society. If today’s students become informed and engaged leaders in tomorrow’s issues, who are able to make informed responsible decisions, we believe the world will be in good hands.



Our Mission

We support teachers and inspire students to better understand the science, technology, and issues related to our environment and natural resources.

Our Vision

We envision future generations of engaged stewards thinking critically about our environment
and natural resources, and their important relationship with our economy and society.

  We Believe in Experiential Learning to Enrich the Curriculum

Our team of educators work directly with teachers and students every day to create first-hand experiences and hands-on learning opportunities that leave a lasting impact.

  We Focus on Key Topics and Issues with an Eye to the Future

We give students and teachers the knowledge, skills, and tools to be innovative leaders and take action in topics related to the environment and natural resource development today and tomorrow.

  We Make our Programs Accessible Across Alberta

Our programs are offered at no cost to schools across the province. Our team of educators ensure that all schools have equal opportunity to access our programs and resources.

  We Bring Together Experts with a Spectrum of Perspectives

Working collaboratively we encourage program participants to be well-informed, critical thinkers and stewards of our environment and natural resources.

Inside Education’s work brings us to all corners of the province, as such, we acknowledge the Indigenous Peoples in the area currently known as Alberta. The relationship the Peoples of Treaty 6, Treaty 7, and Treaty 8 and Alberta’s M├ętis Peoples have with the land is founded on a deep respect for the environment. This connection forms the foundation of our personal responsibility for stewardship of the environment, a connection Inside Education strives to foster among students and teachers through our diverse programming.
