Are you a high school student who is passionate about taking action for sustainability? Want to meet others, including partners and student who share your passion for action in Metro Vancouver and beyond?

Our Youth4Action team invites you to share ideas, success stories, strategies for collaborative action - at each of these upcoming Leadership Clinics.

Participants will:

  • discover the impacts of our daily choices
  • explore how we're connected to sustainability and how we can make a difference
  • share innovative ideas to create sustainable changes to existing systems & how these changes connect to our schools and in communities
  • enjoy a zero waste lunch

Participants may select one or more of the below Leadership Clinics:

  • Climate Action – How can climate-action be influenced at school and beyond?
  • Land Use Planning and Transportation – How can youth leadership and action connect to and support the goals of the regional growth strategy? 
  • Love Food, Hate Waste - How and where is food grown in our region? How much food is wasted? What's happening to reduce food waste?
  • Healthy Oceans – How do plastics impact ocean health? How can our impact be reduced? 

These events have been developed and planned by Metro Vancouver Sustainability Toolbox 2018 students in collaboration with Youth4Action.

(Metro Vancouver Sustainability Toolbox (MVST), is an action-packed, for credit high school course that supports students to learn about and take action on issues that are important to them and that impact their community and school.)

We will send out workshop details to pre-registered students in early 2019.
