  • Youth Climate Action Week

    The week of September 20th, The Climate Reality Project Canadawill be hosting a week of action geared towards youth.

If you want to learn more about how the above topics relate to the climate crisis, if you want to join a space that will allow you to meet other young activists, or simply get ready for the Global Climate Strike on September 24, this week of action is for you! Keep an eye out for more details on each of the events and registration links on our social media platforms.

  • Shake Up Your Campus!

    Target the issues that matter to you and your peers.

    For young people concerned about their opportunities in a world shaped by the climate crisis, Campus Corps offers the chance to take their future into their own hands, starting in their dormitories, classrooms, and campus quads. Campus Corps is a special program for students to take meaningful action while connecting with fellow activists and gaining new leadership skills.

     

    With direct support from Climate Reality Leaders, students at participating campuses receive guidance in designing campaigns and organizing fellow students to convince their schools to embrace clean energy and sustainability and raise awareness about the climate crisis.

     

    By joining Campus Corps, students can take countless initiatives to pressure campuses such as strikes, rallies, petitions, letters to boards, lobbying and more. We’re at a tipping point in the fight to solve the climate crisis and you have the opportunity to be a part of the solution.

  • Campus Corps is a program that was originally created in the United States, by The Climate Reality Project. Some of their campuses are already making meaningful change and in light of their success, The Climate Reality Project Canada wants to implement the program on Canadian soil!

     

    Now it’s time for you to own your power as a young person and as a student. Campus Corps Chapters are making a real difference at the college and university level and influencing policy in their towns, cities, and states.
