What is the Climate Fellowship?

What is the "Climate Fellowship" and "Climate Leadership Training"?

Through Be the Change’s Citizens of the Future (CotF) initiative, we support and empower youth across the Lower Mainland to take environmental action (actions that tackle environmental issues such as climate change).

One component of this initiative is a Climate Fellowship for youth that are engaged in sustainability and looking for opportunities to increase their leadership skills and bring projects that address climate change to their school.  The Climate Leadership Training is part of this larger Fellowship that will include a full-day training session, handbook, mentor matching, and on-going support for students as they bring a “Climate Action Project” to their school.  You can meet some of 2018’s All-Star Fellows here

Why become a Climate Fellow?

What's in it for the students?

  • Training: develop leadership and project planning skills.

  • Networking: building relationships and connections with like-minded peers and supporters from the wider community.

  • Inspiration: project ideas, tools for success, and inspiring stories from other Fellows.

  • Ongoing project support: for example, through virtual meetings, possible mentorship, or a school Climate Action Assembly by BTCEA.

  • Acknowledgement: recognition for student success and efforts through awards, celebration, showcasing, a completion certificate, a letter of reference, and signed community service/volunteer hours.

Be the Change offers a wide variety of services and programs for students and teachers including curriculum support resources, professional development, workshops, and assemblies. For more information, check out or email us directly at
