EFFECTIVE ADVOCACY STARTS WITH EDUCATION

Imagine the impact if every one of the staff members at your resort felt equipped to talk about climate? By making climate education a priority for every member of your resort team and joining us with your leadership team at our yearly resort sustainability summit you will play a huge part in building effective climate advocates. We've compiled a number of educational resources and tools for you to distribute to your staff.

ENTHUSIAST TO ADVOCATE TOOL (coming soon) 

POW Canada’s mission is to turn passionate outdoor people into effective climate advocates. Although that mission resonates with our young and growing membership, we need to ensure we have a toolkit of resources to equip them and help guide them on their journey from enthusiast to advocate.  This graduated video learning program educates and inspires, bringing new voices to the climate movement. Various engagement organizing tactics will ensure everyone who completes it are effective forces for change. Resort Staff are the perfect audience for this tool and we hope you will make it a part of your yearly staff training to give your team a kick start on climate science, action and advocacy.
