Describe the project (200 words)
The City of Regina established the Green Ribbon Advisory Committee in 2001. The Committee was
mandated to develop and implement a Community Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Action Plan.
This Action Plan was approved by Council in 2004. Many recommendations from the Action Plan have
resulted in Actions being implemented by City administration in partnership with other community
organizations. Related Actions include programs and projects related to alternative transportation
(cylcing, etc.), vehicle idling awareness, home and office energy efficiency, and general awareness on
waste reduction and water conservation.


Destination Conservation Saskatchewan (DCS) is an practical, student-driven, activity based program
that brings environmental education alive in our schools. Students, teachers, principals, custodians and
parents all cooperate in this program that helps students do real work for their school to identify
conservation opportunities. A student lead team initiates changes in consumption habits within their
school community. The program focus is on saving energy, conservig water and reducing waste.

Energy Awareness training is designed to help all occupants of a facility save energy at work, home
and on the move. All participants in the program will learn how to conserve energy and water and
reduce waste production. A 5 to 10% energy savings can be achieved through occupant changes and
awareness.
A series of ten posters are being developed to encourage K-12 students to consider careers in
engineering & geosciences. Related lesson plans are being developed and will be printed on the back
of the posters. Posters will be sent to 900 schools across the province.
Organic Connections is the leading organic conference on the Prairies featuring workshops, plenary
and concurrent sessions on Transition, Sustainability, Lifestyles and Farming.



PlantWatch is a Canada-wide network of volunteers who record the blooming times for common plant
species in their province. Information collected by PlantWatchers is a valuable tool used by the
Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Network (EMAN) and the Nature Canada (formerly
Canadian Nature Federation) to track how and at what rate climate change is taking place across the
nation.
PlantWatch program enables "citizen scientists" to get involved by recording flowering times for
selected plant species and reporting these dates to researchers through the Internet or by mail.
Saskatchewan PlantWatch tracks eighteen common native plants as well as two common non-native
plants (Dandelion and Common Purple Lilac). All of these "indicator" plants are useful in spring
phenology (the study of the seasonal timing of life cycle events) studies because they are perennial,
easy to identify, broadly distributed and only bloom for a short time period.

Project WET is a fun, hands-on, activity based instructional program about water, which supplements
the K-12 core curricula in science, social studies, language arts, math, art, wellness and physical
education. The project is field-tested and appropriate for multi-ethnic and multi-level classrooms, and is
recommended by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education for the core science grades 1-10, biology 20
and 30, and chemistry 30. The 515 page Project WET Activity Guide contains 91 complete lesson
plans and student activity sheets with topics that include:
- Human health, such as safe drinking water
- Weather, drought, floods
- Current water issues such as water conservation and climate change
- Water use and management strategies
- Water in the social and cultural context
- Ground and surface water
Project WET activity guides are available to educators through five-hour certification workshops
delivered by teacher facilitators and water resource professionals.

The National Research Council, The City of Regina, and the University of Regina are collaborating to
develop mathematical models and measurement techniques that will help decision makers manage
municipal stormwater drainage in a sustainable way. The models will help to analyze the effects of
changes in urban land use, environmental regulations, potential changes in climate, and deterioration
of aging infrastructure on urban stormwater drainage systems. The techniques will help to measure the
long-term performance of urban drainage systems, and the data from these measurements will be
used to support the development and validation of the mathematical models. The project includes the
following work:
- Develop improved techniques for measuring ground-point rainfall in urban areas
- Analyze the heat addition from urban stormwater flow into receiving water bodies
- Assess the potential impacts of climate change on stormwater drainage in Canadian cities
- Evaluate the reclamation of stormwater runoff for urban irrigation
- Evaluate low-impact development technologies for controlling the quantity and quality of urban
stormwater, such as green roofs and other retention and attenuation facilities
Solar Water Heating Initiative for Today (SHIFT) is funded by Saskatchewan Environment and is
available for large consumers of hot water to install solar water heaters and save money on energy.
The target market will be large consumers of hot water in Saskatchewan such as:
   * Businesses and industries residing and doing business in Saskatchewan
   * Multi-unit residential buildings more than three stories
   * Provincial facilities
   * Public institutions (e.g. schools, hospitals)
   * Municipalities
SRC will pay a one-time fee for the purchase of pre- and post-energy consumption utility records from
the above organizations as related to solar water heater installations in their facilities. This
reimbursement fee will match the federal ecoENERGY for Renewable Heat initiative and be the lesser
amount of 25 per cent of eligible solar water heating project costs (40 per cent in remote communities)
or $80,000.
Applications for this initiative will be made jointly with the federal ecoENERGY for Renewable Heat
initiative, administered by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan). This program limits the overall
government funding that may be used for any solar water heating installation project; these limits will be
applied to SRC's program as well. The percentage and maximum amounts are identical for both SHIFT

The Saskatchewan Research Council's Net Metering Program will pay a one-time fee equivalent to 25
per cent of eligible costs up to a maximum of $100,000 (i.e., maximum $25,000 payment). Projects
with generating capacities of 100kW or less that comply with the local utility's net metering policies and
enter into net metering contracts with their local electric utilities are eligible for funding under this
program. Participants in the program agree to give the SRC access to their utility records for 18 months
prior and 10 years after installation of the generating equipment.
The types of generating equipment currently included in this program are:
   * Wind
   * Low-impact hydro
   * Biomass
   * Heat reclaim
   * Flare gas
   * Photovoltaic (solar)

Cleanfield Energy Corporation and the University of Regina have recently signed a non-disclosure
research agreement which links Cleanfield Energy Corporation, McMaster University and the University
of Regina together to research and test alternative wind technologies. Cleanfield Energy Corporation
believes that University of Regina will build on current research through systems engineering practice
and social impact studies.
Shamrock Energy Systems Limited in conjunction with Cleanfield Energy Corporation is focused on the
distribution of innovative and affordable solutions for clean, renewable energy. Through the
collaborative effort linking the RCE Saskatchewan, the University of Regina and Cleanfield Energy
Corporation the goal is to contribute to Saskatchewan's role as an educational and industry leader in
bringing alternative energy solutions and education for sustainable development to the province and to
the rest of the world.
It is proposed through the collaborative efforts of RCE Saskatchewan, the University of Regina and
Cleanfield that the Vertical Axis Wind Technology (VAWT) be studied and tested for its compatibility,
effectiveness and reliability in Saskatchewan.
In conjunction with the RCE Saskatchewan and following informal discussions with officials from the
The City of Saskatoon is exploring the feasibility and suitability of erecting a tall wind turbine in
Diefenbaker Park. The feasibility study would include a comprehensive environmental assessment and
a year-long wind study for the proposed location. It is hoped that the outcome of the community
engagement and feasibility study activities will lead to the construction and operation of a large wind
turbine.
The expected benefits of a single large wind turbine in Saskatoon are:
    * The provision of environmentally clean and cost-effective electricity - enough to power
approximately 600 homes.
    * The potential improvement of the City of Saskatoon's environmental footprint by the offset of the
City's greenhouse gas emissions.
    * The potential provision of a visible benefit for those residences and businesses wishing to
participate in a program to reduce their own environmental footprint.
    * The creation of a very visible and useful tool for environmental sustainability education in our city.
    * Diefenbaker Park will become a tourist attraction for both residents and visitors.
    * The promotion of Saskatoon as a green and environmentally conscious city.

The City of Saskatoon and Road Map 2020 are working together to engage the community on ways to
better manage energy and lower greenhouse gas emissions. Road Map 2020 is a local non-profit
organization whose members represent a variety of sectors in the community, all working to make
Saskatoon more sustainable. The input gathered by Road Map 2020 contributed to the Energy and
Greenhouse Gas Management Plan, a plan for Saskatoon to lower its emissions.
The Partners for Climate Protection Program, of which Saskatoon is a member, is a network of over
120 Canadian Municipalities that are taking action on climate change and greenhouse gas emissions.
The program uses a five milestone framework to help guide municipalities to lower their greenhouse
gas emissions.
The five milestones are:
   * Milestone One: Create a GHG Emissions Inventory and Forecast
   * Milestone Two: Set a Reduction Target
   * Milestone Three: Develop a Local Action Plan
   * Milestone Four: Implement the Local Action Plan
   * Milestone Five: Measure Progress and Report Results
Meeting the milestones...
     1. Create a greenhouse gas emissions inventory and forecast - The City of Saskatoon has
completed Milestone One. A full copy of the report City of Saskatoon Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Inventory, Forecast & Target is available for review.
     2. Set a reduction target - Milestone Two was completed in the fall of 2005 when City Council
adopted targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 6 % below 1990 levels by 2013 for the

The Regina Public Interest Research Group (RPIRG) hosted a one day event for students and
community members to learn and participate in discussions on issues of public interest. The issues
discussed this year included: provincial politics and student/voting apathy (this was a highlight because
the provincial election was happening shortly after the event. Note that we brought in a professor to
speak, and also an aboriginal politically active community member as well), Saskatchewan Tar Sands
(educating people on the effects of oil and tar sands that are coming to saskatchewan), Aboriginal
issues within post-secondary education (unfortunately our speaker was sick and unable to make it),
Videos (we showed films about Nuclear power, mulitculturalism and discrimination), Queer theory (the
executive director of GBLUR spoke about the "economics of hate and happiness" as it relates to gay
and lesbian issues, university education and student apathy (we discussed what university is, used to
be, should be...etc). We had different student groups tabling the event and providing information for
students. The event was free and catering was purchased from the local organic food store Eat Healthy
Foods.

An alternative energy technology has been approved for Go Green funding through the Ministry of
Environment. Titan Clean Energy Projects Corporation of Saskatoon will use $160,250 of Green
Technology Commercialization Grant funding to help in bringing its biomass briquetting technology to
market.
The process will turn waste agricultural and forestry biomass, such as oat hulls, into a carbon-neutral
heat and energy source for traditional coal consumers. Use of the waste biomass in this way will also
reduce emissions of methane that would normally occur through decomposition. The product may also
be used in woodstoves as a high-energy, eco-friendly alternative to firewood. With the potential to
reduce CO2 emissions by up to 35,000 tonnes annually - the equivalent of taking more than 8,000 cars
off the road for one year - this technology is a practical example of a low carbon energy source.

The semi-arid Palliser Triangle in the southern portion of the Prairie provinces is second only to the
Arctic in terms of its vulnerability to climate change in Canada. While public awareness about climate
change is becoming mainstream, this unique patch of land seems to get lost in the discussions. Public
policy to address adaptation to climate change will be a critical element in determining our success or
failure as human societies. As such, this symposium presented information and analysis on adaptation
to climate change in a policy-relevant and accessible manner for a Saskatchewan audience.

A facebook group uniting over 800 (832 and counting) Canadians to discuss issues and strategies
around climate change...
Be part of the solution. Please feel free to post any environmentalism related stuff on the wall or start a
new discussion. Anything you can share would be cool.
The goal here is to be a place where people can gain access to quality information on climate change
and also to provide a forum for users to sound off on climate issues and come together to help make
things better. Knowledge is power!
[excerpt from leaderpost article]
"We invited a whole bunch of groups from around Saskatchewan that have been involved in actions
towards sustaining the environment," said Kaitlyn Hughes, a Grade 12 student and member of the
environmental club. "There are also groups here that sell environmental products that help to eliminate
pollution or conserve energy."
More than 35 booths were set up throughout the Campbell hallways and gymnasium. The fair ran for
the duration of the day and the majority of students were given time to peruse the displays.
Presentations were also made in the Campbell auditorium about environmental issues relevant to high
school students. RCE climate change student researcher Billy Patterson spoke to about 300 grade nine
students regarding "the environment, climate change, and you."

The first annual Earth Day Film Festival (EDFF) took place in Craik, Saskatchewan on April 25 – 27,
2008. It was inspired and proposed by Kelly Reinhardt and Bridget Haworth of boilingfrog.ca, and
heartily supported by the Craik Sustainable Living Project (CSLP). The festival is committed to raising
awareness and taking action on environmental issues. Besides showcasing six eco-films, the EDFF
provided dynamic discussions, a networking fair, and workshop. The films were very well received -
inspiring and motivating festival goers to become more active in environmental and local food issues.
The EDFF and the CSLP provided nutritious and delicious meals from local food - eating local makes
a huge positive contribution to the environment while strengthening our health, social connections and
local economies. The workshop – “Eating Local, Going Organic” was hosted by Amy Jo Ehman. People
at the workshop shared their experiences in acquiring local and/or organic food, and discussing any
obstacles and opportunities found along the way. 32 different organizations, artists, healers and small
businesses became involved through sponsorship, tabling, funding, food, promotion, etc. The goal was
to bring together people from across the province who are active in environmental issues, and those

The Saskatchewan Organic Directorate, (SOD) has begun a campaign, the FMC, with the following
components:
- to establish possibilities for institutional procurement of local and regional organic food
- to create an online data base to connect producers and consumers
- to create online curriculum resource materials for K-12 and for citizens generally, to educate about
organic agriculture and its potential for health and wellbeing within and among each of the pillars of
sustainable development
- to create a series of films about the Back to the Farm Research Foundation (BFRF) and its founder
Elmer Laird, an organic pioneer
- to establish a media campaign that encourages Saskatchewan citizens to use more local and
Saskatchewan organic products as parts of their daily diets
A key aspect of the concept “food miles” is that the term refers to foods generally, and not only to
certified organic and transitioning producers. The steering committee felt it important that activities of
the FMC be inclusive of natural producers as well. Thus, although the primary focus is Saskatchewan
organics, the logo developed also encourages people to buy local.
The curriculum resources are nearing completion and include high school, middle years, elementary,
This project is a design/ build project by the architectural students of Palliser Campus to demonstrate
and educate to the public various sustainable building methods. These methods include green roofs
and walls, photo voltaics, compositing toilet, recycled materials with multiple purposes, post and beam
construction, straw/clay construction. The community garden site is an appropriate site because it
exposes the students and public to the issues of food security and sustainable shelter. This ongoing
project addresses the issues of climate change, local food production and waste and water
management. This project main target is the architectural students and local students on tours. We
have hosted youth from Uruguay, Ukraine and every province across Canada on educational days. We
hope to monitor the performance of the native vegetation on the green roof and demonstrate the
benefits to students. We are constructing a cool roof to demonstrate the advantages of light coloured
roofs for summer cooling. We will also set up a water retention system from this roof to water the
gardens. Partners are Yara Community Gardens, Connecting as Neighbours, Soprema Building
Products, and the City of Moose Jaw.
Green Life: Learning to Live with the World is a six episode documentary television series that explores
the emergence of Saskatchewan's forward looking environmental attitudes, how we are making
informed choices that will leave our world stronger and healthier for future generations, and how we are
moving towards sustainability by thinking globally, planning regionally and acting locally. Green Life was
envisioned, developed, shot and produced in Saskatchewan and was launched in October 2008. The
first episode aired on SCN on October 16th and the series is continuing to air on SCN. The Sask ESD
Network is the advisory board for Green Life. Sask ESD Network has plans to produce a teacher
resource package, as well as exploring options for an educational companion website. The series
showcases over 45 people from Saskatchewan who have embraced sustainable development. Now,
more than ever, people are recognizing that our world and its resources are finite. At the same time we
are starting to do more to ensure that the world we live in is a healthy, sustainable one. These
emerging values are bringing about a revolution in the way people in Saskatchewan, and around the
world, relate to their environment. Green Life is the first television series to feature Saskatchewan

Green Yourself Week was a great way to learn what to do in your day-to-day life to decrease your
ecological footprint. When it comes to living sustainably, many people ask, "What can I do?"; this was
an opportunity to find out. There were information booths with campus clubs and local
organizations/businesses, a nuclear debate with Gordon Edwards and Duane Bratt, a Ways to Green
Yourself presentation, a bike workshop, a vermi-composting and rooftop gardening workshop, a green
buildings presentation, a One Million Acts of Green kick-off, appearances by Severn Suzuki and
Brendan Brazier, a „mugging‟ (as part of a reusable mug campaign), and two film nights. The content of
the week touched on all 6 of the RCE themes, and respect, responsibility, and equity all came up as
qualities that should set the standards we live up to.This week was about education, but also
empowerment. People are more willing to pursue things when they feel their contribution matters. This
means informing people that their participation, actions and words really matter and will lead to a
greater, more sustainable, world. The event was catered mostly to students, but to faculty, staff and the
broader community as well.
The purpose of the event was to introduce “Re-energize,” the national KAIROS three-year program
(2007-2010), to the Wesley United Church congregation in Regina; to engage the Wesley congregation
in education and action activities to reduce their dependence on fossil fuels (at the personal and other
levels) and thus to reduce their contribution to climate change; to then use this experience to engage
other Regina churches in education and action on climate change, expanding use of the national
KAIROS theme and resources to churches representing the 11 national members of KAIROS. The
event included an introduction to the Ecological Footprint questionnaire, worship service with table
format seating on the theme, table talk discussion on ecological footprints, a 100-mile lunch and
workshop to explore the KAIROS theme on what participants can do to change themselves, their
church and community, and their world. The workshop featured speakers on local food, activism, and
global justice, following by group discussion.

The Re-engineering Education for Sustainability (RESI) is a long term initiative that is designed to
engage all formal, non-formal and even informal education practice, public awareness, and training
programs that will contribute in ways to address sustainability. The RESI is a developmental initiative
with integral and complementary phases. At the post-secondary level, Phase One of the RESI will
focus on research and training related to alternative energy technologies and education. Phase One
establishes two Regional Laboratory Centres (RLC) to facilitate research, educational training and
program development related to sustainable development initiatives. Phase One of the RESI includes
the establishment of an urban and a rural
Research Laboratory Centre (RLC).The purpose of the RESI – RLCs allow for the:
Demonstration of new technology or adapted technology in a rural and urban setting;
Demonstration of the commercial feasibility of the technologies;
Research and training in the use of the technologies and provide in concert with industry, SIAST, and
the two provincial Universities;
Development of standard business practice and funding arrangements to accelerate the process of
communities adopting the demonstrated technologies to their use; and,
Identification of research gaps that could be filled by research at both Universities and SIAST.
The Youth Forum on Sustainability, hosted by the Royal Saskatchewan Museum in partnership with the
University of Regina and Learning for a Sustainable Future from 2004-2007, is a process that supports
high school students and help them become empowered to take action to create more sustainable
communities. Catalyzed by three conference days spread over a ten-month period, the Forum brings
together teachers, students and community partners to participate in workshops focusing on exploring
local sustainability issues and action planning. School Action Teams (usually two teachers and five
students from each participating school class or extracurricular club) develop and implement their
action plans with the assistance of community partners. One primary goal of such a process is to shift
the responsibility for choosing, planning and implementing action projects to the youth, with the
teachers‟ and community members taking on the role of facilitators, supporters and “sparring partners.”

The purpose of the Network is to bring educators into an action framework that will facilitate networking
and partnership, sharing of practical tools and activities, and strong collective communications
messages. The ultimate objective is to create awareness, understanding, and action on locally and
global sustainability issues. The goals of the Sask ESD Network are:
• To foster public education and awareness of sustainable development; To build partners within
Saskatchewan and beyond to further ESD; To integrate sustainability into formal education; To support
sustainable development training for all sectors; and To promote “learning by doing”

The pilot of the HEEP program took place in 2005 in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. The concept was
developed after a conversation regarding the costs associated with energy efficient upgrades and how
some low income families are unable to cover these costs. These students at Palliser campus set out
to assist low income families with making these changes and saving heating costs and green house
gas emissions. The objective of the Share the Warmth HEEP program was to provide the homeowner
with not only the products necessary to reduce their energy bills but also to provide them with the
knowledge necessary to carry out the yearly upgrades. The students at SIAST proposed that groups of
volunteers from the
school and the community visit low income families and complete minor energy efficiency in the home.
To this end 100 homes were visited with a kit of upgrades by this Class of 08 and a number of other
volunteers from the community. Share the Warmth program continues to expand and has created an
objective to assist 2500 families throughout the province of Saskatchewan by the year 2010.

The SIAST Green Group Initiative started with a small group of dedicated individuals at the SIAST
Wascana campus in Regina, who, in the 2005-06 academic year, called a meeting of interested people
on campus to form a green group. The purpose of this group was to green the workplace or learning
space, depending on whether you were an employee or a student. At about the same time SIAST
started offering a new internal funding program environment that “encourages people [at SIAST] to
share and learn, gives everyone a voice, looks at ways to do things better and continues to grow and
change”. Building on prior successes, each campus, with their own unique collection of academic
programs, will engage students, staff and faculty
in advancing their understanding of the principles of sustainability.

The project is targeted at high school students from Saskatoon Public and Saskatoon Catholic schools
systems. It came about as a result of the youth forum held last year at the College where both
teachers, Ms. Tracy Laverty and Ms. Sheelah McLean attended with their previous classes. This year,
Bedford Road Collegiate has a new integrated program where Sheelah and Tracy team teach ELA30,
History 30 and Global Citizenship 30. The Citizens Inspiring Change students were inspired by last
year‟s class at Bedford and now they want to adopt a social action project that will involve themselves
every step of the way in organizing and executing a sustainability conference. The purpose of this
project is to educate Saskatoon high school students by raising awareness in three areas: social,
environmental and economic sustainability, by promoting action within schools and allowing students to
gain a new perspective on some of these issues. The first day will consist of educational trade show
and meet and greet, where students will interact with guest speakers and liaisons from various
humanitarian organizations in an informal setting that afternoon. Day two will be a full day event where
students will have the opportunity to interact with each other, and attend a variety of sessions hearing
from many accomplished speakers from Saskatoon and area. This project is important because as
Specifically the two projects of “Moving from Awareness to Action” focus on:
a) Helping and supporting the Faculty of Education in becoming aware of their role with ESD and
teacher education in all of the undergraduate courses. b) Building capacity through the several hundred
pre-service teachers that are now in the field as professional teachers incorporating the skills and
resources learned through the Train the Trainer workshops. Recently a presentation was delivered to
all EPS 100 pre-service teachers specifically on their personal and professional role with sustainability
and education. c) Specific results on the “Train the Trainer Model” of workshops and research can be
viewed by visiting the Environment Canada website and viewing: “Review of the Effectiveness of
Workshops for Educators on Climate Change: Final Report” (September 2007) (POR Number 045-07)
by Lyle A. Benko. Also the research and further focus on ESD was published in a chapter titled:
Education for Sustainable
Development: Chapter 7 published by Municipal World (2008) in their book: “Stepping up to the Climate
Change Challenge”. A proposal has been accepted and a presentation is being planned on behalf of
the U.N. University at the World Environment Education Conference in Montreal (May 2009) by Lyle
Youth Forum 2008 was a three-parted forum where students from across the city and outside of
Saskatoon had an opportunity to come together at the College of Education, University of
Saskatchewan. This particular youth forum came about as a result of observing students in Regina
attending a youth forum the previous year and the hope that Saskatoon students could be offered the
same opportunity. Youth Forum 2008 was a result of being able with funds granted from the Green
Initiatives Fund with the Ministry of Environment to empower youth to make positive change in their
communities. Youth had many opportunities to interact with students from other schools and develop
partnerships with presenters from many governmental and non-governmental organizations on topics
addressing pillars of sustainability. The conference culminated with the youth in attendance presenting
their action projects for sustainable development in a way that enhanced their project and created
comfort for the students engaged in the presentation. The students really enjoyed hearing about the
triumphs and difficulties other students had with their projects and it was a great celebration of their
hard work and effort.
