"[SLC] has had a surprisingly big impact on me, reminding us of our word's problems so many have turned a blind eye to. I have started becoming more mindful of the items we waste and recycle in my house. Of course, I knew of this dilemma earlier, but it never quite sunk in that climate change is real, it is happening, and I can make a difference."  -Delta Student

 

HOW MUCH DOES THE CLIMATE ACTION UNIT COST?

The 2018 IPCC report warned of only 11 years to address climate change. In response to this urgent call to action Be The Change is making the new Climate Action Unit and all Student Leadership for Change (SLC) programs FREE for BC educators and students
