We have teamed up with EcoSchools Canada to give students across the country the opportunity to participate in the school-based Bondar Challenge and support their EcoSchools certification application. The nature photography challenge is inspired by the remarkable work of Dr. Roberta Bondar.
As the largest bilingual, environmental certification program for kindergarten to grade 12 schools in the country, EcoSchools Canada invites more schools to participate in the Bondar Challenge by evolving on-line resources in both official languages and allowing schools to claim points for the Challenge in their online EcoSchools’ certification application.
“This is a wonderful way to expand the reach of our program to be even more accessible and we are pleased to join forces with EcoSchools Canada in our efforts to promote curiosity, creativity and conservation. Getting youth outside to explore the world around them through photography, contributes to their overall wellness and mental health.”Dr. Roberta Bondar, President, The Roberta Bondar Foundation
If you are a student or teacher who would like to know more about how to participate in the Bondar Challenge with EcoSchools Canada, please visit the Bondar Challenge web page:
The Roberta Bondar Foundation still delivers other versions of the Bondar Challenge. Visit our program page to explore them.
We are also developing a brand new program for schools, based on our AMASS/Space for Birds research project. Stay tuned for its launch!
