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 do some further research but they can spend as much or as little time as they like outside of sessions learning more.

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.
