Linden Students Part of Climate Change History
Linden Students were featured in an opinion piece published in the
"I wish I could have joined Linden’s global climate action with my daughter. I will remind her for the rest of her life that she marched in solidarity with Greta. She told me all about it that evening, and led her three-year-old brother in circles around her dad that night, shouting 'Hey, hey, ho, ho, climate change has got to go. Climate Action Now! Climate Action Now!'" — Elementary School Parent
The Linden School is lucky to have a small but mighty group of students with strong political leanings and an interest in the world around them. In response to their discussions about the Global Climate Strike, The Linden School staff supported students in planning a day of action on Friday, September 27th. It was wonderful to see our students joining millions around the world as they added their voices to the global call for action on climate change.
Environmental collapse is a significant area of concern for our students. By structuring the school day around this day of action, Linden created a fertile environment for students’ political goals and responded to their concerns with a constructive outlet.
The day of action included education sessions led by Grade 12 student Sophie, poster-making, attending the rally, and enjoying a low-waste picnic lunch in Queen’s Park.
Our Climate Change Day of Action Planning Committee — Beth, Coco, Amy and Molly — not only created memorable experiences for Linden students, they also inspired other schools to take action by sharing their curriculum and strategies.
