New: 2021 Climate Change & Education Survey

Calling all educators, parents, students and members of the general public: LSF needs to hear your voice on the importance of climate change education in Canada!

We have launched a nationwide survey to assess Canadians’ perceptions and understanding of Climate Change, and how the education system should respond. 

About the Survey

LSF has launched a follow-up to the groundbreaking 2019 “Canada, Climate Change and Education” survey. This benchmark study gave us a look into climate change knowledge and education practice in Canada and produced recommendations for all sectors to support climate change learning.

We’re excited to follow up with our second climate change education survey to see how things have changed—a lot has happened since 2019!

If you are a K-12 educator, a K-12 parent, a student 12 years of age or older, a faculty of education instructor, or a member of the general public, we want to hear from you. 

The survey will take about 15-20 minutes to complete and your answers will remain confidential and anonymous. By taking part in this survey, you will help our understanding of how the public, teachers, parents and students view climate change education in Canadian schools and what supports are needed to effectively teach climate change in classrooms.  The results will be used to develop recommendations to governments, school districts and educators to help Canadian youth address climate change. 

*Participants can enter into a draw to win a HP Chromebook!
