Are you a student at WSS? Do you want to get involved in Climate Action? Then join Project: Now! Registration is currently OPEN.
Together with the WSS EnviroClub we’re launching a new climate action mentorship program for WSS students
What is Project Now?
Project Now is a youth mentorship program centered around climate action and engagement. Over the next few months you will engage in multiple sessions to plan and implement a climate action project within your school or community. You will have the opportunity to work individually or in teams on a project of your choosing and each project will be paired with an expert mentor to assist in bringing the project from an idea to a reality.
Why was Project Now Created?
Project Now was created in response to actions taken in 2019 by youth in Whistler and across Canada. It’s clear that Climate Change is a priority for many young Canadians and that more work needs to be done by individuals, governments and businesses if we want to ensure a healthy future for all. Our aim is to provide you with the tools and support needed to help you turn your ideas into real action.
Where and When does Project Now Take Place?
This program will take place from January to June 2021, during Thursday Enviro Club meetings with the exception of Session 8 & 11 (green dates below). Regular sessions will start promptly at 11:50am and end at 12:25pm in room 202. There will be 10 mandatory sessions and 1 optional session. Sessions 8 & 11 will be 1-2 hours in length and take place after school (exact times to be determined).
