Virtual and In-Person Presentations
Conservation Corps Newfoundland and Labrador (CCNL) educators provide free, curriculum-linked classroom presentations on climate change for K-12. These presentations are specifically designed to explain the science behind climate change in an engaging, age-appropriate manner. Our educators empower students by discussing actions we can take to mitigate and adapt to climate change.
What to Expect
The presentation consists of a quick discussion on climate change followed by a reading of our digital storybook, “The Climate Change Club Helps at Home.” The book follows our Climate Change Club characters taking a road trip across NL – including stops in Hopedale, Conne River, Ramea, and St. John’s! – to explore ways our communities are tackling climate change. If time permits, the presentations will conclude with a short video about ways to mitigate climate change at home (featuring our mascot Polly the Polar Bear).
Length: 30 minutes
We will deliver our “Together for Change!” PowerPoint presentation. The slideshow features a general background on the science of climate change, how it impacts the world, and ends with a discussion about practical solutions to mitigate climate change in our everyday lives.
Length: 50 minutes
Junior and Senior High
We deliver our “Climate Change: Our Global Challenge” presentation. The slideshow explores and discusses the human impact of climate change, and how it’s impacting Newfoundland and Labrador and our global community. We end with a discussion about practical solutions to mitigate climate change in our everyday lives.
Length: 50 minutes
