Johnny Biosphere Environmental Education Fund

Funding is available to support your creation of a project to help youth of all ages learn about the environment.

Mathematics, Science and Technology Education

The Johnny Biosphere Environmental Education Fund was established in March 2008 by the family of Dr. John Vallentyne, who was a Queen's University professor, prominent research scientist, and lifelong environmental activist. In his persona of Johnny Biosphere, Dr Vallentyne appeared before thousands of students, teachers and environmental groups all over the world. His message was simple and direct: what we do affects the Earth; what the Earth does affects us. The Mathematics, Science and Technological Education (MSTE) Group at the Faculty of Education now sponsors this fund and invites you to develop a project aimed at promoting environmental education and apply for up to $2000 in funds to support it.

The application deadline is October 22, 2017, by 4 pm . Successful applicants will be notified by October 31, 2017. 

Project completion, report and receipts in by April 27, 2018. 

Further information and application forms can be found in the EDUCATION - Intranet.
