GreenLearning is a rapidly growing organization that has established itself as a leader in the area of education on climate, energy and green economy through our highly rated programs.
We require immediate assistance with the branding of a national youth project called Climate Action 150/Action Climatique 150.
Climate Action 150 is a national youth dialogue taking place during Canada’s 150th birthday celebrations that is focused on moving toward a low-carbon and prosperous Canada for the next 150 years. The goal of this project is to foster informed, critical, constructive dialogue among youth, their communities, and the Government of Canada on how youth will be a part of shaping a low- carbon, prosperous future.
Specifically, we aim to engage youth in researching local impacts of climate change, reflecting on the skills and passions they can contribute to moving toward and low-carbon future, and designing solutions that make use of their skills and passions to address local impacts.
This initiative will engage youth from coast to coast to coast in official and Native languages.
25 high schools classes — from all regions including the North with rural and urban — will work with community partners to examine climate change in their community. Students communicate their findings in a variety of media. Students then meet in a series of virtual seminars, with expert-mentors to synthesize their findings.
Select student leaders will take all student input to create a final product that incorporates all of their recommendations and stories for "Moving Towards a Low-Carbon and Prosperous Canada." This may take the form of a mini-doc, a white paper, a story book, or a combination of media.
In a final virtual Town Hall, students will share their final product with key influencers, including the Government of Canada.
Throughout the entire process, students 1) identify personal actions and track these; 2) use social media to engage youth beyond the 25 classes; 3) plan and initiate climate action projects; and 4) communicate their findings within their own networks.
