SD79 Petition

I call on School District 79 to follow the example of the Victoria School District 61 and others, declare a "climate emergency," and direct staff to develop a plan to reduce emissions in school operations (including buildings and buses), and acknowledge and address climate impacts for students, exploring ways to integrate more climate-related education into the curriculum.


Will you sign?

The Greater Victoria School District 61 recently declared a "climate emergency" and directed staff to develop a climate plan to reduce emissions. Vancouver and North Vancouver just followed suit.

The Cowichan Valley School District 79 (SD79) controls 31 buildings and properties and 36 school buses and influences what gets taught in our schools.

Please join other parents, teachers, students, and citizens in asking the Trustees of SD79 to follow Victoria's example, declare a climate emergency, and to follow through with action.
