Building A Movement Too Powerful To Ignore

What is the Climate Action Accelerator Program?

The CAAP is designed to guide schools to create a whole-school climate action plan. Each school creates a multi-disciplinary, intergenerational team to pursue learning about the climate and nature context, the potential for impact, and the framework and models for creating and implementing bold, hope-filled, whole-school climate and nature action. Schools learn in cohorts, networking and collaborating with schools across Canada.

Facilitated by experienced leaders in school climate action with guest experts to bring specialized learning based on the specific needs of each cohort.

Learning & collaborating with school teams – students, teachers, administrators, facilities and operations staff, parents, Board members – from schools across Canada and now in the U.S.

A three-year commitment to building organizational capacity for leadership in climate and nature action.

Bringing all your initiatives related to sustainability, climate action, biodiversity, and conservation into one coordinated, strategic climate action plan with measurable short and longer term goals.

What is the goal of Climate Action Accelerator Program?

To catalyze bold whole-school climate and nature action in school communities, in the K-12 sector and beyond. We must all achieve net-zero by 2050 and reverse the biodiversity trends. Every sector needs leaders who need to get there decades sooner to chart the path. We want to find leaders in elementary and secondary schools and help them create and implement hope-filled, audacious plans. We will share the learning and inspire other schools to join us.
