When we teach climate change from a global perspective, it can be vast and intimidating. We want students to realize that climate change is something they can tackle individually, as a community, and as a generation.
Enter Kids Cutting Carbon, a climate education program developed in collaboration with Reep Green Solutions for students in Waterloo
Region. Through group sessions featuring Project Neutral’s free, easy-to-use carbon footprint
calculator, students will understand their carbon impact, build climate literacy, and
start to take meaningful climate action.
When students measure their own carbon footprint, they connect their knowledge of climate science with the anthropogenic sources of global warming in a direct and meaningful way.
