In the mid-to-late 1990s, we spearheaded the Better Schools Partnership® (BSP), a brand strategy that generated new capital for school-building renewal, resulting in an enhanced learning and teaching environment. In 2005 a new strategy was developed and launched – QTLE (Quality Teaching and Learning Environments) – which addressed school-building hindrances that impact teaching and student learning.
In 2003, TCI co-created EarthCARE (EC), An Environmental Youth Leadership Program, for students in Grades K-12. This program was woven into the provincial curriculum, and engaged 100,000 students in their schools’ efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs). EC also trimmed millions of dollars of waste through recycling, improved water management and other key efforts.
