This year, BC Green Games and BC Sustainable Energy Association's Climate Change Showdown have teamed up to offer more resources, more project support and more prizes!

Register your team early for the BC Green Games  and your grade 4–7 class could win one of ten workshops* with climate change specialists from BC Sustainable Energy Association (BCSEA).

Climate change workshops provide students with a framework to understand greenhouse gas production and management. The program helps students develop long-term strategies to reduce their greenhouse gas contribution by promoting accountability and consistency.

Grade 4–7 teams that register by November 30 are eligible to win one of ten workshops in qualifying regions!

Don't forget, teams that register by November 30 are also entered to win one of six Sony cameras!
