The first milestone number of Canadians we aim to educate through our courses
What’s the problem?
Canadians know we are living in a climate emergency, that solutions have been invented but there is not enough follow-through happening.
High school education on climate change and sustainability are falling short across Canada
Time & pressure on individuals: wanting to learn more means either applying to an institution or doing a lot of online research. This could result in learning from incorrect statistics, confusing and misleading information based on biased opinions & traditional news sources and difficulty in understanding academic style of writing and vocabulary.
There is a lack of scientifically-based information on how we can move forward in the most effective way possible as individuals and pressure to speed up changes at the corporate and political levels.
A big problem with institutionalized education is the lack of women’s voices & perspectives throughout history and in all aspects of society.
Climate Change will affect all of Canada’s top industries within the next 10 years.
