Community News: Limited spaces available for BCSEA’s Cool It! Climate Leadership Training this Spring
by Bayside School - Tuesday, 30 March 2021, 8:31 AM


We have 5 spaces remaining for our Spring 2021 Cool It! - Climate Leadership Training Program this Spring.

The Cool It! - Climate Leadership Training is generously sponsored by the District of Central Saanich and is offered FREE for grade 4-7 classes in Central Saanich

Our training consists of two components: an interactive virtual workshop and a take-home challenge for students.

Interactive virtual workshop

Experienced Environmental Educators facilitate a 60-minute, interactive workshop (delivered via video conferencing), which will equip your students with the skills and enthusiasm to learn more about climate change and undertake new actions at school, home and in their communities. 

Take-home climate challenge

Our 4-week take home activity, the Cool It! Climate Challenge Card, encourages students to work with their families to reduce their carbon footprint at home and learn more about local and provincial responses to climate change. The winning class and top students in each area will receive prizes for their amazing efforts. We also provide lots of supporting materials, tools and information for every action on our Challenge Card so that the whole class can work through actions and exercises together over the course of the month.

Adapting to classroom changes

Our Environmental Educators can confidently deliver the training remotely via virtual conferencing technology. We have successfully delivered over 80 online workshops via virtual conferencing technology in classrooms across BC during Spring and Fall 2020.

We are happy to work directly with you to adapt any elements of the training or our delivery approach to meet the specific physical distancing and technology requirements of your school and classroom.
