  • An eight-week program designed to engage you and your workplace team in climate action!  No expertise needed, only passion!  There are four modules; each is two weeks in duration. 

Module 1: The Science Behind Climate Change

Module 2: Business as a Force for Change

Module 3: Climate Strategies & Opportunities

Module 4: Putting the Action Into Climate Action

  • Every week you will receive two emails with readings and resources. The emails will be sent out on Mondays and Wednesdays. Get a quick summary on the topic or dig deeper – you choose!
  • At the end of each module, you'll have the opportunity to hear from local experts in climate change and action. They'll bring to life all the ideas presented throughout the challenge and allow you the space to ask your questions.
