Be The Change Earth Alliance is partnering with The UBC Climate Hub to offer free workshops to empower high school aged youth to take action on climate change. Many resources already exist to teach youth about the science of climate change and the urgent threat it poses to our society. Evidence suggests, however, that informing youth about climate change is not enough, and that providing presentations only on the science of climate change can leave participants feeling worried, anxious, and unable to engage.

Our workshops aim to supplement existing resources with information about how high school students can become “Climate Ambassadors” and encourage their local communities to take action on climate change. By empowering young people to act and demonstrating how effective their actions can be, we aim to foster a sense of agency and purpose.

Each workshop is facilitated by UBC student volunteers, who can meaningfully relate to and engage with their high school peers. Workshops can occur in classrooms, before or after school, in community centers, or at the UBC Climate Hub.
