BCSEA's Cool It! Climate Leadership Training program develops and empowers young sustainability champions in schools in British Columbia.

Cool It! is an interactive environmental workshop and contest for students in grades 4 to 7. In each 90-minute workshop, our Environmental Educators use videos, games, quizzes and discussion to build on students’ knowledge of climate change.

Following the workshop, students take home the four-week Cool It! Challenge that encourages families to make easy but important changes to their energy consumption. Through this activity, students and their families are challenged to initiate life-long behaviour changes in order to reduce their carbon footprint.

After four weeks, the contests are collected and the results are converted into measurable greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions. Students and classes have the opportunity to win prizes and receive acknowledgement for their achievements at City Council meetings in their community.

The new Cool It! program supports teachers to engage students to learn about climate change required in the new BC curriculum, and connects with the BC curriculum in the areas of Science, Math and Social Studies, as well as core competencies.
