GEN ACTION: Rallying Youth Climate Heroes!
Together, CASC Members will inform and inspire Canada’s youth to take action for climate change.
In 2021, Environment and Climate Change Canada approved an application led by Discovery Centre, in partnership with the Canadian Association of Science Centres (CASC), Science North and The Exploration Place for funding from the Environmental Damages Fund (EDF) to Inspire Youth to Climate Action.
As part of this project, CASC will help flow-through $3 Million to CASC Member Institutions to engage over 200,000 K-12/CÉGEP youth in every province and territory across Canada.
The funds will support diverse, hands-on and locally relevant activities with an expected confirmed change in awareness and behaviours among participants, resulting in increased motivation to take action toward the reduction of greenhouse gases.
