Sustainability Awards

Wednesday, May 8, 2019

Since 2007, the annual RCE Saskatchewan Education for Sustainable Development Recognition Event has honoured local individuals, groups and organizations that have made innovative achievements in education that builds capacity for sustainable development in Saskatchewan and that help contribute to the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (2015-2030).  Held in a different community each year, the event shines a spotlight on projects from across the province.

2019 Event at Candle Lake

With the theme Sustainable Partnerships: Nurturing the Next Generation of Land Stewards, this year’s event will take place on Wednesday, May 8, 2019, at the Hannin Creek Education and Applied Research Centre on the shores of Candle Lake. Saskatchewan's only boreal field station, the Centre is a partnership of Saskatchewan Polytechnic and the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation.

The day promises to be very exciting. In addition to the recognition awards in the morning, Saskatchewan Polytechnic, our community host, is planning a very interactive and interesting afternoon featuring its campus and the applied research being done through its diverse sustainability programs just as forestry, fisheries, wildlife, conservation law, and environmental, civil and water resources engineering technology.

Join Us At This Year's Event

Please consider joining us this year at the Hannin Creek Education and Applied Research Centre. In early May the campus will be beautiful and, as always, we expect the Recognition Event to be an inspiring and hope-filled event.

The RCE Recognition Event is typically attended by both award recipients and others who are interested in networking and learning about the diversity of Education for Sustainable Development initiatives in Saskatchewan.

Award recipients can attend the event at no cost.  For others wishing participate, the cost is $25.00 to cover the cost of meals and refreshments.  For anyone wishing to stay at the camp the night before the event, modest accomodations at a reasonable cost can be arranged.  If you wish to make arrangements to attend, please contact the event coordinator at rcesk.event@gmail.com

Award Applications 

Applications for this year's recognition event are now closed.  Details on recipients will soon be released.

In addition to the awards that recognize innovative achievement in education for sustainability, all applications are considered for the Lyle Benko Future Generations Award.  This award recognizes a K-12 project that demonstrates an outstanding contribution to Education for Sustainable Development in Saskatchewan.  This award was created by RCE Saskatchewan in grateful recognition of Lyle Benko, who passed away in February of 2016.  Lyle was a founding co-coordinator of the RCE, was passionate about leaving future generations a more sustainable world and was an inspiration to many in the field of education. A tribute to Lyle Benko can be found at www.saskrce.ca.
