Climate Change Solutions Toolkit

This is our NEWEST Sierra Club BC resource for teachers and informal educators of middle years students.

Climate change is the most pressing issue of our time. We have developed this set of teaching resources to help you plan lessons that foster young thinkers to engage with this issue and think about the solutions.

The lesson plan is broken down into 10 sections, based on the 10 climate action recommendations of a Sierra Club BC report, The Future is Here.

Sierra Club BC In-school Education Programs

Our team offers environmental education programs for grade k-8 classrooms across B.C.  We visit over 150 classes a year, prioritizing wait-listed classes the following school year. All of our programs are free-of-cost. We encourage a suggested donation of $50.00 per classroom to help us keep this incredible program up and running!
