About this event

The future is in our hands! The 2018 IPCC report expressed grave concerns that the world may lose the battle against climate change unless all sections of civil society are engaged in mitigation efforts. Our world has more young people than ever before, yet they continue to be unaware and disengaged from all aspects of agenda setting, decision making and implementation related to the mitigation of climate change. Youth empowerment, especially those from vulnerable communities, is critical in this regard, as they are amongst the most affected by its impacts. This workshop will spread awareness about the intersectionality of the climate crisis with gender, inequality, poverty, biodiversity and peace and how young people can take action at a local level to mitigate them. Participants will learn about Sustainable Development Goals and come up with solutions that they can implement in their local communities.

About the Mayor's Environment Expo

The annual Mayor's Environment Expo is held in conjunction with National Environment Week with the goal to empower and educate Calgary’s youth to practice and promote environmental actions, shaping a healthier and greener city for tomorrow.

The Mayor's Environment Expo will take place virtually June 1-3, 2021 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Using a virtual format for 2021 reduces uncertainty on the part of teachers to be able to participate and ensures students can attend the Expo regardless of whether they are attending school in-class or online.
