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. 

Saving Our Planet: Faith In Action (World Ocean Environment Day & World Ocean Day)- 2021

Saving Our Planet: Faith in Action was a two-session virtual event featuring a diverse speaker lineup including clergy from several faith traditions, elected officials, and environmental experts, timed to coincide with World Environment Day (June 5) and World Oceans Day (June 8).

We hosted this event in our role as British Columbia’s Official Faith Based Community Conveners for Anti-Racism Initiatives, because we recognize that climate change impacts racialized communities in outsize ways.

 

We believe that our diverse faith communities are uniquely equipped to consider the complex circumstances contributing to climate change and our collective moral obligation to mitigate its impacts. And we recognize an extraordinary opportunity for us to come together as a multi-faith community to take action, together, on climate change.

Action-oriented: their work provides Canada’s youth the platform to make a positive difference for Canada's natural environment. Engaging: They discuss environmental topics through mediums that provide high-quality participation and mentorship. They go beyond surface-level issues to get to the heart of what matters: our world, and our future.
