International Youth Day - Celebrating Youth Leaders Fighting for the Environment
On August 12, we celebrated International Youth Day with an event to highlight inspirational Canadian youth leaders of today as well as hear from youth allies. We are inviting you to join us as a speaker for the event.
Considering the extreme weather and harm, due to climate change, that Canada is facing, the theme of this year’s event is “Youth Stepping Up to the Challenge”.
Canada’s youth are often voiceless in decisions that will affect their future, yet we know that young people are full of innovations that can help solve our biggest environmental problems.
International days and weeks are occasions to educate the public on issues of concern, to mobilize political will and resources to address global problems, and to celebrate and reinforce achievements of humanity. International Youth Day can be a positive opportunity to support the youth leaders of today with both the platform and relationships they need to excel.
