SUSTAINABILITY & CLIMATE ACTION

Role: Electric school bus advocate
Organization: For Our Kids
Location: virtual, anywhere in Canada

Advocate for electric school buses in your school district.

For Our Kids is a grassroots, volunteer led network of parents, grandparents and others across Canada working for a sustainable future for our kids.

We've recently launched an electric school bus campaign, and are looking for volunteers in communities across Canada to champion this issue.

Right now, most school buses in Canada run on diesel. Exposure to diesel exhaust is linked to asthma, allergies, cancer and other health impacts — and diesel is a fossil fuel and causes climate change. Luckily, there is now a better alternative for school bus transportation. Electric school buses are the best choice for our kids' health and the climate - and we'd like to see school districts across Canada making the switch.

We're looking for parents, grandparents, guardians or carers to advocate for electric school buses at the school district and/or provincial level.

This role suitable for all those who...

  • are interested in climate action or health
  • want to make schools more sustainable

We can...

  • support you with background research and materials
  • connect you with others who are working on this issue
  • training
