YouCAN

The Youth Climate Action Now, or ‘YouCAN’ project is a new, collaborative initiative between the Clean Foundation and partner organizations in Atlantic Canada.

YouCAN will engage youth to improve climate awareness and understanding of personal mitigation efforts, support teachers across disciplines to educate on climate change, and empower youth to take action in their own lives and communities.

Eddie’s Litterless Quest

Eddie is a cat, a loveable puppet, and an environmental superhero standing up for all the critters of the world and the environment they live in.

Through humour, rhymes and song, children learn the importance of keeping their neighbourhoods clean from litter and the importance of energy and its conservation. And he has his own video game too!

Clean Schools

Our Clean School programs use a participatory and interactive workshop style and a solutions-based approach to environmental problems.

By promoting critical thinking, student engagement and a holistic view of the human-nature connection, we strive to deepen learning that will not only increase knowledge around these issues, but also foster environmental values and commitments among students.

How will your campers find their own climate change solutions? Wonder at the power of oceans and forests in helping the world’s natural cycles stay in balance? Or learn how to make their very own cloud? Explore our themed sessions below to learn more and find the best fit for your group!

“The kids loved playing with the solar panels and wind turbines. Some of this equipment could be expensive to purchase as a class set, so it is nice for the kids to have the opportunity to see these items in action.”

Sharon, Grade 6 Teacher

“It was enthralling. My students were on the seats of their pants throughout the entire performance. Now they discuss their lunches each day to make sure that they do not include litter that could harm animals.”

Brenda, Grade P Teacher

“Recently, my students have been very engaged in how to help our earth. This gave them more background knowledge to use when making decisions about what they can do to protect the earth.”

Crystal, Grade 6 Teacher
