Women & Girls: Making a Difference for the Environment

Sun Mar 8, 2020, Victoria, BC

Youth environmentalism is not a new phenomenon. For decades, our youth have assertively challenged rigid political views in order to make a difference. What is new, is the sense of urgency our young people are feeling around making significant change to address the challenges of climate change.

Following a keynote address by Elizabeth May, each of four panel speakers will offer their perspectives on what we can do as individuals to address the urgency of climate change.

Following the formal presentations, guests will have the opportunity to have coffee, visit exhibitor displays and gather information about their products, services, and/or initiatives. By the end of the forum, participants will have been exposed to new ideas and will be inspired to make changes in their personal lives and in the communities in which they live.

Thank you to Canada'a green bank (TD Bank) for their financial support of this event.
