CLIMATE CHANGE EDUCATION CENTRE (CCEC)
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.
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.
The CCEC has published two storybooks that complement the Kindergarten to grade 6 classroom presentations; “Who’s in Charge of Climate Change,” and “Together We Can.” Both 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.
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.
