Climate Justice in BC: Lessons for Transformation

Print-friendly PDFs are now available. You can download the complete resource package here, or individual module PDFs on their respective web pages.

Are you looking for new ways to teach about climate change and social justice? Frustrated with models that stop at changing light bulbs and driving smart cars?

The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives and the BC Teachers’ Federation have teamed up to create free classroom-ready materials that help students engage with the two great inconvenient truths of our time: climate change and rising inequality. And we don’t stop at small-scale personal choices, climate justice looks to how we can re-imagine the systems around us to make a better life for everyone.

Consisting of eight modules designed for students in grades 8 to 12 (adaptable for intermediate), the package explores climate justice within the context of BC’s communities, history, economy and ecology.
