We would like to congratulate the winning class for the 2018/19 Cool It! challenge in the District of West Vancouver: Sandra Kwan's grade 5 class from Westcot Elementary.

The students were invited to present as a delegation at a West Vancouver council meeting at City Hall. The students did a fantastic job presenting their climate concerns for West Vancouver and requested the council focus on funding for climate projects, reforestation and cleaning of waterways, and declaring a climate emergency, among other ideas. Two students even recommended following in the Philippines' footsteps and require students to plant trees to graduate!

Congratulations to all the students!    View the video here!
