Accelerating youth climate action for a better tomorrow
Climate change is the largest threat to ocean health and the future of our blue planet. This is why Ocean Wise, TakingITGlobal and GreenLearning have partnered to engage and empower young Canadians with innovative climate action and education. Empowering youth leaders is our best opportunity to protect and restore our oceans and solve the climate crisis.
Waves of Change blends in-person events, digital engagement, and educational resources for Canadian youth K-12, to highlight the important connections between climate change and ocean health, and the daily actions Canadians can take to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Together we will accelerate youth climate action to build a better world for all.
