Our Pro-D Day Climate Training is now available for booking. Open to all teacher and available in English or French, in person or online.
Ideal Pro-D Day Climate Training (2 to 3 hours)
– Based on the Climate Collage (100 000 participants so far) it is a collaborative, scientific and fun game about the causes and effects of climate change. This workshop condenses hundreds of hours of scientific readings to provide solid scientific knowledge, vocabulary and more importantly, a clear map of the climate system. The Climate Workshop is designed to help teachers (all grades) to prepare for the discussions in class, to design climate or environmental lessons, and to prepare for actions with the students. You can book via phone (778-238-2980) or email (email@example.com).
