Presentation

The Imperative of Including Youth

While environmental challenges are incredibly important to address for future generations, we all too often omit future generations from the process of overcoming these challenges. These youth speakers, environmental leaders from around the Calgary area, will share with the audience the imperative of (and benefits to) including youth in sustainability projects across all sectors, and provide tips on how to do just this.

This presentation is co-hosted with Laura Hughes from the Alberta Council for Environmental Education.
