For Our Kids Toronto


Current Projects


Led by For Our Kids Toronto facilitators, School Climate Conversations (SCCs) are judgement-free online or in-person presentations and discussions where parents, teachers, and adult allies can deepen their understanding of climate change and its impacts - and the range of current and available solutions.

Recognizing that youth are experiencing growing rates of anxiety related to climate change, SCCs aim to help adults better understand how they can address young people’s climate emotions, cultivate their resilience, and support them in taking action.

Our SCCs provide resources and tools for making connections with local groups and organizations working on climate justice-related initiatives. We also provide information on Toronto's Youth Climate Action Grants for youth-led school community climate initiatives that advance the goals of TransformTO – the City of Toronto’s climate action plan.

A full SCC is 90 minutes, but we can also provide a 20 minute presentation to your school advisory or parent council. We can also tailor our presentation for specific groups and areas outside of Toronto. Please email us at [email protected] to inquire.


For Our Kids Toronto is also running more informal one hour climate conversations for parents in local libraries and community centres. These Parent Climate Conversation sessions will be run in tandem with eco-programs for kids. While parents participate in a guided conversation about climate-related concerns and interests, children can participate in eco-friendly story-telling sessions and art-based activities. Participants will receive resources for talking to children about climate change, recommendations for story books, and ideas for actions that families can take together in their communities.

Sign on to our mailing list to stay informed of upcoming School Climate Conversations or Parent Climate Conversations. If you are part of a group who would like to participate in or host either type of session. We'd be happy to tailor a session to fit your group's needs.
