Climate Change Showdown

The Climate Change Showdown program is a partnership between the City and the BC Sustainable Energy Association (BCSEA) to deliver educational workshops for grades five and six students in all City schools. BCSEA is a non-profit association committed to promoting the understanding, development and adoption of sustainable energy and energy conservation and efficiency in British Columbia.

If your school would like to participate in the next Showdown, please contact the BCSEA at ccshowdown@bcsea.org. School sign-up usually occurs during the Fall with the Showdown taking place the following Spring.
