FOR youth aged 14 – 18

Environmental Youth Network

A youth-led project aimed at empowering youth to take climate action into their own hands. Through a series of meetings, youth aged 14– 18 collaborate with other like-minded youth, through community mapping, to figure out environmental challenges facing their local communities across the Waterloo Region and at rare. The Network then puts together a plan to tackle these challenges by working with local researchers, and rare staff.

The Network also serves as a hub for connecting youth with similar passions across the Waterloo Region and for sustainability sector skill-building through a series of workshops.
