Youth climate action summit

Do you have a skill that young climate leaders need? Are you willing to teach it in a free 90 minute workshop?

Together with Climate Fast and the Sandbox Project, The Children’s Advocate, Irwin Elman, and I are organizing a Youth Climate Action Summit the afternoon of Sunday, September 22 in mid Toronto as part of Climate Week. The summit will offer support and skills training to Ontario‘s young climate leaders.

If you would like to offer a workshop, please send a paragraph describing who you are and what you would teach to merayner@sandboxproject.ca. The climate strikers will choose which workshops they would like to have. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you. #climatecrisis
