Canadian Earth Institute “Creating our future now”
At the Canadian Earth Institute we take an enjoyable, supportive, personally meaningful and inclusive approach to environmental awareness and protection. Why wait until tomorrow when we can create the world we want today?
We generate positive environmental change through a complimentary set of discussion courses with action steps, and natural building projects with other community organizations. Our work is based on connection, personal reflection, practical skills, and working with others for the benefit of our world.
Natural Building Work with others in your community to learn environmentally-friendly, practical skills. For example, construct benches, ovens, or even houses using cob and other sustainable building practices; learn how to grow your own food in tune with nature (permaculture); or, set up systems for recycling greywater, rainwater harvesting and a composting toilet.
Discussion Courses Join friends, family and other community members in an enjoyable, supportive setting to examine personal values and habits, engage in stimulating discussion, and increase awareness of the need to protect the earth. Participants experience renewed hope and high levels of motivation and commitment that engender lasting and meaningful change.
