Hot Planet Cool Athletes Canada (HPCA) is a program of Protect Our Winters Canada that seeks to educate and inspire the next generation of climate champions.
HPCA utilizes the UN Sports for Climate Action Framework by bringing Olympic Medalists and World Champions into schools to deliver curriculum-based climate education to students in partnership with leading outdoor industry brands.
"Thanks to the Hot Planet Cool Athlete assembly, the culture of our school has positively changed for years to come. Students are noticeably more enthusiastic and eager to talk about climate change with their peers and what they can do to solve the problems it poses for their generation. Thank you, POW & HPCA!” - Principal
What People Are Saying
"The presentation was fantastic. I was so pleased that they started with the hard truth and moved into inspiration for our youth to make a difference.. part of what we value in our Education system is instilling hope in our youth."
"By the way, we have taken things seriously here.. The students (all but 5) joined the #FridaysForFuture march the following day and then I challenged our high school to have a waste free month."
