A project that celebrates diverse cultures, practices and traditions in climate action;

OR addresses/raises awareness about the disparities faced by different communities, identities and cultures in experiencing the effects of climate change.

Examples of past projects applicable to this theme:

  • Outdoor stewardship projects that highlight diverse practices such as medicine gardens, Indigenous food gardens and nurseries, or African-diaspora gardens
  • Media that amplifies voices of Black, Indigenous and People of Colour and their experiences with climate change, such as the Our Climate, Our Stories ebook by EnviroMuslims or the Establish podcast by Shake Up the Establishment


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