To encourage young people to participate in the fight against climate change, the Government of Canada recently launched the Youth Climate site.

Young Canadians between the ages of 8 and 15 are invited to participate in the fight against climate change via the new site Youth climate. Here is the portrait of this interactive platform as well as that of other sites of the same kind.

Clean and easy to navigate, the new Canadian government site offers several educational activities concerning this global challenge. Of games and information capsules encourage young people to introspect their own knowledge, while making them aware of the impact of their daily actions and those of those around them.

These young people will now be empowered and equipped to talk about these issues to their loved ones in order to make them aware of the simple actions that can be taken at home, at school and in the community. Catherine McKenna, Canadian Minister for the Environment and Climate Change, believes that by positioning themselves early on this issue, they will become important players in the fight against climate change.

The site Small experiments suggests, for its part, activities to be carried out in class in order to understand and, above all, to visualize various elements related to global warming.

To complete this overview, several relevant videos are presented on the Greenpeace Canada website. Strongly invested in exposing environmental issues, this organization even offers training to people wishing to get involved at this level.
