Youth Climate Action Summit is a go for Sept. 22

What: Youth Climate Action Summit

When: Sunday, September 22, 2019 from 1:30 – 5:30 p.m.

Where: Friends Meeting House, 60 Lowther Avenue, Toronto (near St. George Station)

Who should attend?  Young climate leaders (approximately ages 16-22), whether you're an experienced leader or just starting to think about organizing in your school or community.

Why should you attend? To get inspired, to build your skills, and to build your network.

More than ever, youth in Canada are raising their voices to bring awareness to the climate crisis. But how can young people get their voices listened to in the halls of power? Join us in Toronto to develop your skills as a climate activist and advocate in youth community.

Register now at YouthClimateActionSummit.eventbrite.ca.

We'll start with an opening panel. Youth will then choose between workshops on embodied personal leadership (Satya Robinson and Jon Love),  Civil disobedience and the law (Marlys Edwardh), How climate impacts health and how to talk about it (Jan Kasperski), Ask me about climate science (Prof. William Gough) and How to talk effectively to government and media (Don Huff, President of ECO Strategy). Followed by a rousing conclusion and a solutions fair.

Thank you so much to everyone who volunteered to help, and to our generous sponsors, Indigo and Bullfrog!
