Newfoundland and Labrador
Real Progress to a Cleaner Future
Conservation Corps Newfoundland and Labrador (CCNL) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing youth with training and employment in environmental and cultural heritage conservation across Newfoundland and Labrador. To foster awareness of climate change science, impacts and solutions in our communities, CCNL provides climate change education programming to classrooms; funding for youth-led climate action projects; and professional learning resources on climate change.
What Conservation Corps Newfoundland & Labrador Offers:
Conservation Corps Newfoundland & Labrador educators provide free, curriculum-linked classroom presentations on climate change for K-12. These presentations are specifically designed to explain the science behind climate change in an engaging, age-appropriate manner. Our educators empower youth by discussing actions we can take to mitigate and adapt to climate change.
Teaching about climate change in the classroom can empower youth through hands-on, inquiry-based learning, and can serve the development of project-based learning initiatives in your school. Our Teaching Climate Change podcast series was developed specifically for educators, traditional knowledge holders, and youth leaders in Newfoundland and Labrador.
CCNL provides funding for youth-led climate action projects, such as recycling and composting initiatives, the development of hydroponic gardens, beekeeping, and more.
