As part of a $37.8 million Climate Action and Awareness Fund, the Government of Canada is investing $6 million toward a youth-focused climate change project, coined GenAction, led by science centres and museums across Canada.
Indus Space has joined 29 Canadian Association of Science Centres’ (CASC) members in delivering programs to youth under 18. Our collective goal is to create and deliver GenAction climate change engagement programs, targeting youth in every province and territory in Canada.
GenAction climate change programming range in different styles, such as school programs, camps, outreach, and other hands-on locally relevant activities to help youth understand current and credible climate change science, transform their thinking, and inspire them to take action. The goal of GenAction programming is to reach 200,000 kindergarten to grade 12 youth and more than 5,000 Indigenous youth in their communities, with a focus on affecting daily actions that will collectively contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
