Youth Climate Action Now
YouCan: Youth Climate Action Now!
It is imperative for the next generation of Canadians to understand the science and solutions behind the global challenge of climate change, as it will greatly affect them in their lifetime.
The Youth Climate Action Now, or ‘YouCAN’ project is a new, collaborative initiative between the Clean Foundation and partner organizations which will engage youth and educators across four Atlantic provinces with the goals of improving climate awareness and understanding of personal mitigation efforts, supporting teachers across disciplines to educate on climate science, and empowering youth to take action in their own lives and communities.
Over the projects span, together with our partners, we will provide professional learning to 2000 teachers and informal educators across the Atlantic provinces. This will be delivered at the provincial level to provide educators with local support to better meet provincial curriculum requirements.
Over the 5 years of this project, 70,000 youth in the Atlantic provinces will be engaged, empowering them to lead hundreds of climate actions to address climate change in their communities.
