“My city and the climate” by the Canadian kids !

November 30, 2015 | By francecanadaculture Canada

Looking ahead to the COP21 conference of Paris, the Embassy of France to Canada has invited students in Canada to contribute to an international performance based on the theme of “My city and the climate”.

Lycées across Canada and French-language schools of the CEPEO rose to the challenge! You can check out their videos here.

BRAVO to all the students and teachers who got involved with this project!

We are happy to announce that two projects are also presented in Paris in the Climate Generations area of the COP21 and participate to an international contest so GO AND VOTE FOR THE CANADIANS PROJECTS ! (2 clicks!)

You cannot miss them because these two projects are the following:

* Autour de la feuille d'érable : une vie de feuille by Lycée Claudel, lycée français d'Ottawa

With passionate haste, in a friendly atmosphere, the grade 11 students and the grade 1 kids share their abilities in harmony. The land art created is captured and immortalised before coming back to life thanks to recycling. The artists bond in a warming experience in the heart of nature.

* Soupirail by L'école De La Salle, Ottawa

In the spirit of exploring the theme My city-My climate, the students took a series of pictures of people in their community. The participants had to choose one of the three posters prepared by the students  and they were asked to explain their wish for COP21.
