Climate Change Programs
Climate change is hitting Canada first and at twice the rate of the rest of the world. The impacts of these changes are vast. We are already experiencing more floods, more wildfires and a greater incidence of climate-related disease. First Nations, Inuit and Metis children are amongst the most vulnerable to these changes.
Save the Children is committed to working with First Nations, Metis, and Inuit communities to reduce the impact of disasters and climate change on children.
Preparedness: Building Resilience
We work with communities to build capacity to protect the most vulnerable among us during disasters – children. We help generate child-focused emergency plans, provide emergency training and resources in advance, helping keep children safe when disasters strike.
Mental Health and Climate Change
Through cooperative play, literacy, discussion, and art, Journey of Hope helps young children, adolescents, teens and adults build their resilience and cope following a crisis.
Community Adaptation Research and Planning
Climate change is already affecting communities in Canada, First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples, particularly children, are amongst those hardest hit. We work with local partners, using participatory & child-led approaches to identify risks and build adaptation plans.
