Wetlands to the Rescue

Grade Level: Grade 9 and up 

Wetlands to the Rescue! combines extensive research on how wetlands play a role in mitigating climate change, while also making sure young people are taught climate change in a responsible way that will make them feel empowered.

In this PowerPoint, students will learn the causes and consequences of climate change in Canada, examples of behaviour-based and nature-based solutions, how wetlands are helping us in the fight against climate change, and how young climate activists are changing the world.

Runtime for the PowerPoint is approximately 35 minutes. Teachers have the option to take a break in the middle and make time for the activity My Hobby, Our Climate or The Climate Change Conundrum.
