CEED (Circular Environmental EDucation) Canada is a not-for-profit environmental awareness organization. We provide tools and resources to help people recognize and reduce their impact on their local communities and ultimately the global environment.

We primarily work with low-income, racialized, communities in the social housing sector. In addition to the community, other partners include but are not limited to property managers, municipal leaders, funders, food security advocates, researchers, educators, and policymakers.

CENTERING CULTURAL CONNECTIONS AND EQUITY
AND IS KEY TO OUR SUCCESS

While centering equity, CEED takes complex issues typically associated with climate action and makes them simple for community members to understand, convenient for people to implement, and culturally relevant to activate long-term behaviour change, resulting in reduced GHG emissions.

We use anecdotal research gathered from personal interviews, conduct needs assessments, then design curriculum content incorporating the findings of the data.

ABOUT CEED CANADA

EDUCATE. INSPIRE. TRANSFORM.

CEED Canada delivers culturally relevant climate education that transforms and inspires people to act. We build bridges with existing community stakeholders to advocate and encourage residents to use their local footsteps to reduce our global imprint.

Our Vision

MEET ZAMANI RA
Zamani Ra is the Founder and Executive Director of CEED (Circular Environmental EDucation) Canada , a non-profit that amplifies environmental and climate action in Toronto’s underserved communities.

Her work is two-pronged; advocacy for climate equity and simple, convenient and culturally relevant education to inspire sustainable behavior change. Zamani is member of the Black Environmentalist Alliance, on the Advisory Board for Toronto Community Housing’s Confronting Anti-Black Racism Unit, one of twelve mentees in Women4ClimateTO (W4CTO) and most recently, awarded the 2022 Leading Social Justice Fellowship at U of T’s School for Cities.
