HSBC Clean Air Achievers
HSBC Clean Air Achievers (HSBC/CAA) is a FREE, national program, available in both French and English, that explores transportation choices and its impact on air quality, climate change and health. Students use a sophisticated website to enter travel trips which calculates the greenhouse gas emissions they have prevented by choosing sustainable modes of travel. Teachers are provided a comprehensive Teachers Manual with a range of curriculum linked activities.
Time Required: Teachers can decide on their time commitment to the program and complete a few lessons from the Teacher Manual or as many as they like. Two hours are needed for the Champion presentation (one hour per presentation) and a minimum of two hours needed for students to enter trips into the online calculator.
