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!

Sharing the harvest

Presently we have a large First Nations tradition plant demonstration plot. We are working with our First Nations partners to develop a seed and plant material distribution plan. Our students have learned to harvest, dry, and collect the seeds so they may be shared with all the schools in the board

Environmental Inequity (People)

The students will plant and build a natural shelter made with bendable live branches of willow trees. This will be place close to the first nation garden build last year.

The students will plant small willow trees. The tall branches will be bent and shaped into a shelter looking like a longhouse. The idea is to build a longhouse next to the first nation garden that the students build last year and the pine tree (the peace tree of the Iroquoiens) that was planted.
