OUR NETWORK

Working with a variety of groups including municipalities, industry and youth, the CCEC provides climate change education to raise awareness of the important issue, while encouraging action within our communities.

SNAPSHOTS OF OUR WORK

As a leader of climate change outreach in the province, the CCEC has connected with more than 100,000 Newfoundlanders and Labradorians since its foundation. Striving to create meaningful learning opportunities, our presentations provide relevant climate change information; examining how it affects us at a local level, while exploring the positive ways we can impact our planet.

CLIMATE CHANGE EDUCATION CENTRE

CLIMATE CHANGE EDUCATION

Presenting to an average of 13,000 youth annually, the CCEC’s climate change classroom programming has been developed to meet a myriad of cross-curricular outcomes, at no cost to participating classes.

Offering a whole-view perspective of climate change, the CCEC’s presentations explore what it is, why it is happening, how it impacts us locally and, most importantly, it addresses solutions to tackle climate change.

BILINGUAL PRESENTATIONS

With delivery of presentations in both English and French, students from Kindergarten to grade twelve across Newfoundland and Labrador are visited by our Assistant Education and Outreach Coordinators, who strive to leave the students feeling informed and empowered to help our planet.

STORYBOOKS

The CCEC has published three storybooks that complement the Kindergarten to grade 6 classroom presentations; “Who’s in Charge of Climate Change,”  “Together We Can,” and "The Climate Change Club Helps At Home." All three books include recurring characters that appeal to a younger audience, while relaying important themes surrounding climate change. The books have been very well received by students, and are considered to be valuable resources by the teachers of our province.

ENVIRONMENTAL ETHIC

The CCEC plays an integral role in developing an environmental ethic in youth, and is committed to growing climate change literacy throughout the province. This would not be possible without the generous support of the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador’s Department of Municipal Affairs and Environment.
