Course Description

Climate change has widely be deemed 'the greatest challenge of our generation'. With recent worldwide climate strikes, COP 27, climate change being front and centre in recent elections and with increasingly alarming UN reports being issued, the time to act is now. Luckily it seems there is a new generation of young Canadians that are ready to tackle this challenge head on. This course will provide an interactive and engaging overview of the challenges facing both Canadians, and the rest of the world with these issues. It will also present students with an overview of the ways in which climate change can and has been successfully countered while allowing them the opportunity to spend the week building toward what they see as a comprehensive, realistic and sound Canadian climate strategy.
