It is crucial for students to be able to take action for the climate and feel empowered. This ambassador program gives students a way to make a difference and to be part of a community of peers who also want to take action. Students will channel their knowledge on climate change into climate action.
The junior ambassador program is aimed at elementary school students, grades 1st - 5th, who come to our workshops or lessons and want to get further involved and take actions.
