Climate Action: Refuse to do Nothing
The CANADA’S CHANGING CLIMATE REPORT, released in 2019, indicates that the effects of widespread warming are evident in many parts of Canada and are projected to intensify at double the global rate. According to the UN, whether we limit warming to this level and prevent the most severe climate impacts depends on actions taken this decade.
While we personally cannot hold back sea level rise or extreme weather events, neither can we ignore it. As leaders dedicated to the education, health and well-being of young people, our educational approaches must bolster the agency and empowerment of students to feel they, and society, can and is taking meaningful climate action.
