Each session covers a key area of climate change. Sessions are first framed around the impact of individual actions, such as planting a tree, but are expanded upon to help Fellows understand the wider impact of companies, innovations, governments and society.

Sessions also include custom case studies and physical learning tools mailed to each Fellow for use during the sessions.

Frequently Asked Questions.

Who developed the Next Climate Fellowship?

The Next Climate Fellowship is a program created by Appleby College in Ontario Canada. The program was created after noting the strong interest in learning more about Climate Change from students. The program was developed in partnership with climate change, educational and leadership experts to create a program which would aid in developing tomorrow’s leaders in Climate Change, business and more.

What is the time commitment for Fellows?

The Next Climate Fellowship program takes place once per week for 1.5 hours. During the week student’s may be asked to watch a video or participate in a conversation through our community but no more than 30 minutes to one hour should be needed during the week although student’s can spend as much or as little time as they like working on projects and exploring their curiosities.

Who does the program work best for?

The Next Climate Fellowship is a great fit for any student from those who may have heard of climate change but don’t know much about it, right through to students already thoroughly engaged in climate change conversations and action. A general interest and willingness to learn more about climate change makes for a great candidate.
