Promoting education and public awareness regarding Global Climate Change and its connection to carbon emissions is our main objective here at the McMaster Centre for Climate Change.

We aim to achieve comprehensive public awareness of Climate Change issues through speaker series, public partnerships, highschool outreach, and educational reasources.

 

Highschool Outreach

Educating our future generations about the challenges they will face when confronting IMG 0539 180x180pxclimate change is an important part of our mandate at the McMaster Centre for Climate Change.  Focusing on high school programs in the region, our goal is to develop a strong outreach initiative that compliments the current Ontario curriculum, while providing a unique educational experience for those involved. 

To date, this initiative has seen local high school students visit the McMaster campus for Climate Day, while graduate students and professors have also visited schools across the city and region.

The centre is currently in the midst of developing a curriculum-based educational outreach program, in partnership with the McMaster University Office of Sustainability.

 

 

Partnerships

Climate Change is one of the complex issues of our time.  Realizing this, the McMaster Centre for Climate Change strongly supports the need for individuals, groups, and organizations to work together when discussing how best to learn, react, and adapt to climate change.  As a part of our outreach mandate, the MCCC is developing public partnerships with a variety of local organizations.  Our partners and partner institutes are listed below, and we encourage you to visit their respective websites to learn more about the work that each of them are engaged in.
