Youth Challenge International and Evergreen are teaming up to host a Youth Action Summit on Gather.Town!

About this Event

Youth Challenge International and Evergreen Brickworks are hosting a Youth Action Summit, bringing together almost 200 Climate Action Catalysts, Climate Leaders, and Future City Builders. These 16-25 year old's across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) have been working on projects tackling city building and climate issues.

At the Youth Action Summit, hosted on Gather.Town, we will convene to celebrate their impact, showcase their initiatives to partners and the general public, and inspire continued civic engagement - whether through community building or climate action.

This event includes:

  • A digital showcase featuring the work of YCI's Climate Action Catalysts
  • Action Room. A networking space for youth to find out how to get involved in volunteer opportunities and youth-led climate initiatives, including representatives from: Live Green Toronto, Taking IT Global, Peel Community Climate Council, Urban Minds, the Emerging Leaders Network, and more!
  • Keynote Presentation: "Unpacking Resilience: A More Equitable Approach to Climate Action" with Shannon Holness, Urban Planner
  • Panel: "A Just and Green Recovery". A green and inclusive recovery is crucial to the future well-being of our communities, our environment and our planet. What does this look like, who needs to be involved, and how can we make sure it's done right? How are youth involved in shaping and playing a leading role in this recovery? Join panelists Ajeev Bhatia of Centre for Connected Communities, Lanrick Bennett Jr. of 8-80 Cities, and Miriam Fernandes of Why Not Theatre for this important discussion.
  • Networking, games, and more!
