The Saskatchewan Environmental Society (SES) is a non-profit, registered charity whose mandate is to work towards a world in which all needs can be met in sustainable ways. Sustainability requires healthy ecosystems, livelihoods, and communities.
SES has been active in Saskatchewan since 1970 and is committed to supporting sustainable living and resource use in the province. We work with, and on behalf of, organizations, businesses, and policymakers to encourage informed decision-making that moves us towards sustainability. We undertake research and use educational programs, community outreach, and consultation opportunities to provide the people of Saskatchewan with support, information, and the tools they need to make informed decisions.
SES concentrates on sustainable energy and climate solutions, water protection, resource conservation, biodiversity preservation, and reduction of toxic substances. We focus on four areas of action: provision of information services, speakers, and educational material; develop policy and solutions to problems, as well as influence and participate in societal decision-making; create action projects to demonstrate the viability of solutions; support community groups and assist them in organization of reaching sustainable goals in their communities, as well as help groups to shift towards sustainability.
