A project that helps to lower the carbon footprint of your community.

Around the world, young people are experiencing the effects of the changing climate change first-hand. Climate anxiety is real, but there is hope. By taking the lead and working together to act against climate change, you and your project can be part of the solution for a sustainable future.

Examples of past projects applicable to this theme:

  • Do an energy audit of your school and see how your school can reduce its energy use
  • Lead a climate march in your community to bring awareness to the issue
  • Host a tree planting day to increase tree cover and the sequestration of carbon


Our Resource section includes things like our Climate Change Curriculum Guide and our Biodiversity Guide. These can be helpful tools for any project!
