Our mission is to equip educators to teach Canada's youth about the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals. Our goal is to advance the work of the UN through education of the Global Goals in classrooms, inspiring our future leaders to take action in their communities.
The Sustainable Superheroes package contains educational materials and activities to teach children in Grades 3-6 across Atlantic Canada about the UN's Global Goals. We have created a comprehensive program for teachers to use that complements school subjects such as Science, Math, Language Arts, Health, and Social Studies. Our materials help facilitate discussions about what is going on in the world today and encourage sustainable practices that will empower students to become more environmentally and socially conscious citizens. Each package includes a SucSeed Grow Garden that uses hands-on activities to complement the learning experience.

Sustainable Superheroes is powered by SucSeed, so you may recognize some of our faces.

Choices for Youth is a non-profit, charitable, community-based agency that provides housing, employment, and lifestyle development support to youth aged 16-29 in the St. John’s metro area. Youth are employed by Choices to assemble SucSeed’s Gardens, which are a part of the Sustainable Superheroes Educational Package.
Enactus Memorial is a student-run volunteer organization based out of Memorial University. They are assisting with Sustainable Superheroes by developing an activity for Goal 3: Good Health and Well-Being focused on heart health, creating a Jeopardy game based on the Goal, as well as filming and marketing support.
SucSeed earned the Sustainable Development Goals Funding Program grant from the Government of Canada’s Employment and Social Development division to develop what we have called ‘Sustainable Superheroes’. Right now, the funding is only for 50 classrooms across Atlantic Canada but has the potential to grow across Canada to more classrooms.
