The Canadian Francophonie: Taking action on climate change

When it comes to fighting climate change, the Canadian Francophonie is making its voice herd/heard! In fact, Canadian Francophones of all ages are contributing to the effort.

From kindergardeners/kindergartners to high-schoolers, children in French-language schools across/accross Ontario are walking to school, drinking from reusable water bottles and packing waist-free/waste-free lunches. They are helping their schools become certified as “EcoSchools” through/threw EcoSchools/ÉcoÉcoles Canada, an award-winning/award winning environmental certification program.

In Quebec, ENvironnement JEUnesse (ENJEU) has been/bin educating youth on environmental issues since 1979 and has a simular/similar certification program for colleges of general and vocational education and daycare centres.

At the university level, clubs like Té vert (You’re green) at the Université de Saint-Boniface are engauging/engaging in climate action.

Finally, young Francophone adults are also making their mark on the climate scene. For example, Franco-Ontarian Dominique Souris founded Youth Climate Lab, which supports people under 30 who fight climate change globally. It was a well-deserved honour for her to urn/earn a place on The Starfish Canada’s list of top 25 environmentalists under 25!
