13 Climate

Scouts is the Start of Fighting Climate Change

Imagine a world with a healthy, lively climate. Fight by measuring your carbon footprint, challenging yourself to go vegetarian for a week, or supporting green infrastructure projects.

Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.

Are you ready to help the planet?

Climate change is starting to have visible effects around the world. Reducing the impact of climate change requires education, action and awareness. In Canada, this means reducing our greenhouse gas emissions and ensuring that everyone is well-equipped to face the effects of climate change. Measure your carbon footprint, write letters to your local government to encourage them to take action against climate change or challenge yourself to go vegetarian for a week!
