The Climate Change Challenge Mini Series, is a series of workshops where participants can enrol in a challenge, with the hopes of creating and taking action on ideas that can help keep our planet, and Canada a healthy place to live in. During this workshop, our in house facilitators lead the participants through three steps: (1) identify a climate change problem, (2) find a solution, (3) create a planning and pitching the idea to get their idea going.
We had a blast empowering the next generation through our Climate Change Challenge! Participants were able to: identify and learn about the current climate crises, create action plans around it, and pitch, present to community leaders! We were able to empower 300 participants, and tie in our SDG goals as well. The final result was a pitching competition that happened during our Empowerment Gala in December

The entire executive team is under the age of 25, our 137 volunteers that were involved were between 15-22 years of age. We recruited them from our previous events.
We successfully connected and engaged Grades 3-12 and their families, through this program, we were able to develop strong action plans for the next generation to carry out.
Being able to connect local leaders, to council members, to the federal government, and get them to all act on local change and support the next generation.
The biggest lesson I learned is that my team should’ve advertise and market our event earlier.
