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:

  • Cultural Preservation projects such as Indigenous beading workshops, drum making and knowledge sharing
  • 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!

From Our Garden Your Garden

Classrooms in our school will plant and grow corn, bean, and squash (the 3 sisters) plants to learn more about indigenous gardening. We will also include some herbs plants that are native to our area. These plants will then be offered to school families to be planted in their home gardens.

Gardens for Seniors

Our group has been growing our Niagara Butterflyway for the past 3 years. We currently have over 40 gardens across the Niagara Region. This year we hope to increase our intergenerational native gardens by setting up our team of youth with interested seniors and plant pollinator gardens for them.

Hampstead School Community Garden

We are proposing installing garden boxes to have a community vegetable garden for students and their families to maintain and benefit from. So much rich learning can happen in the garden and the lessons learned in the school garden can be carried home to make a more sustainable community.

Indigenous Awareness Initiative

This project will provide tools to non-Indigenous youth in understanding and taking action towards the journey of reconciliation. It will allow youth consider climate change, loss of biodiversity, and environmental inequity through Indigenous lenses and wisdom, and reflect on their responses.

Our school is located on the traditional land and territory of Songhees and Esquimalt First Nations. We want to have Indigenous plants to be visible so when Nation members come to the school there is a familiarity in the seeing Indigenous plants.

Indigenous Courtyard Outdoor Learning Space

We are in the midst of renovating a courtyard to provide a space for reflective learning and wellness, while increasing engagement with Indigenous Ways of Knowing and understandings. Signage will identify traditional usages of native plant species. There is an area for a sharing circle.
