What We Do
Skye Consulting develops and facilitates K-12 and adult education classroom workshops on topics including sustainability education, air quality, financial literacy, career development and many others. We bring the ideas of our clients alive in the classroom, while connecting each topic with the grade-specific curriculum requirements.
Fraser Valley Regional District
Clean air contributes to healthy people, productive crops, thriving ecosystems, and clear views. Working closely with the Fraser Valley Regional District, Skye Consulting developed air quality education programs for the region focusing on how transportation and energy choices can affect the air we breathe! Skye offers classroom workshops during the school year.
Skye Consulting, as part of the Green Bricks team, involves youth in sustainable land use and development through science-based, curriculum-linked outreach programs. These programs are offered free of charge to various elementary and secondary classrooms across our province. We reach classrooms live, both virtually and in-class.
City of North Vancouver
Working with the City of North Vancouver, Skye Consulting developed and presented in the elementary classrooms on topics around energy conservation, waste management and diversion and encourages youth to keep our streets beautiful. Teachers and students love the hands-on activities.
City of Surrey
Since 2004, Skye has worked with the City of Surrey to develop and present a suite of K-12 and adult English learners (ELL) classrooms on topics of waste, energy and water conservation that affect our community. These programs are highly interactive and curriculum-connected for each grade. We have reached up to 650 classrooms a year with these programs and even created virtual workshops in 2020.
City of Delta
Working with elementary schools in Delta, Skye developed and delivers engaging workshops on water conservation and waste management. Connected to the curriculum, teachers and students love learning about these important topics in our community.
Working with Metro Vancouver, Skye created and facilitates a new program: the virtual Watershed Field Trip. Via this online workshop, students discover the treasures of the Seymour and Coquitlam Watersheds through an engaging, curriculum connected, live virtual field trip where our facilitator “visits” with a series of activities and videos to bring the watersheds alive in the classroom or home-based learning environment.
Skye Consulting develops curriculum-related resources geared towards K-12 learners across Canada and has worked on topics that include waste management, energy conservation, financial literacy and youth-health-related education.
BC Hydro’s Power Smart for Schools is an online hub of energy-focused activities and lessons for teachers looking for new ways to inspire their students. Skye Consulting has been a leading curriculum contributor to building the resources for this platform since 2018 working on topics around conservation, electrical safety and various educational campaigns.
Vancouver Fraser Port Authority (VFPA)
In partnership with VFPA, Skye Consulting is developing resources for students to explore how infrastructure improvements benefit many aspects of a community whilst safely exporting and importing goods. These online resources provide a framework for K-3 and 4-7 students to learn how VFPA’s sustainability framework, of incorporating the three pillars of sustainability: healthy environment, thriving communities and economic prosperity through trade, is shaping infrastructure in our region. The activities in these resources are designed to be interactive with hands-on activities and engage students in critical thinking and creativity in group work.
BC Lung Association
Skye Consulting worked with BC Lung Association to help create tool kits around vaping to assist teachers, counsellors, health care providers, and parents present important information and support about vaping and youth.
Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN)
The RDN's Drinking Water and Watershed Protection Program, Skye Consulting, Nanaimo and Area Land Trust, and Indigenous Learning Coordinators collaborated to create a regional resource focusing on drinking water and watershed protection for grades K-3 and 4-7. The message of what we all can do to protect the water is shared with students through interactive and engaging activities including games, crafts, STEM experiments and multimedia. The modules combine Indigenous stories and knowledge, local references, science, culture and hands-on activities to reinforce learning.
Skye Consulting worked with UNICEF Canada's Global Classroom team to create a resource called Climate Change, Children and Youth: Local Connections to Global Issues, to support secondary school educators to work with youth to take action on climate change. Through thought-provoking activities, students have the opportunity to nurture their compassion and discover how climate change is affecting children around the world.
