Why Canada needs Climate Ready Schools


Schools are hubs of learning and play where children develop and build relationships with each other and the natural world.

Within the larger global context of climate change, Canadian school grounds are becoming major hotspots for flooding during storms making it essential to build climate resilience.

Climate Ready Schools builds on Evergreen’s 30-year legacy of transforming school grounds across Canada into nature-rich play and learning environments for children and community. This is Evergreen’s next stage of intensive work to green Canadian school grounds bringing in best practices from around the world and combining them with the lessons and relationships built through transforming over 6,000 Canadian schools, impacting over 1 million students.
