The 2024 Provincial Envirothon NB Competition Current Environmental Issue – Renewable Energy for a Sustainable Future

The Envirothon® is an environmental and natural resource conservation problem-solving, teambuilding and leadership experience and competition for middle and high school students. Incorporating STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) principles, experiential learning and hands-on outdoor field experiences, the Envirothon fosters student learning in the areas of AQUATIC ECOLOGY, FORESTRY, SOILS and LAND USE, WILDLIFE, and CURRENT ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES (2024 Renewable Energy for a Sustainable Future).

Students are challenged to develop critical thinking skills to create inventive solutions to the complex local and global environmental and natural resource issues facing our world today. With the Envirothon, students are empowered to educate others, take action in their local communities, pursue higher academic study in environmental disciplines, and to work toward careers in the environment, natural resources and conservation.
