Are you 15 – 25 and passionate about addressing some of the issues that arise from the intersection of climate change, colonization, and racialized and gender-based inequities?
The Youth Climate Justice Group is a space where like-minded youths can come together to discuss and brainstorm solutions to many of these issues. The panel will consist of weekly conversations held in a range of locations, as well as field trips to engage with food-security based community projects!

The first Youth Climate Justice Group session will be taking place on THURSDAY, JUNE 2nd, from 4-5pm at the UVic Garry Oak Meadow (at the corner of Gordon Head Rd. and Cedar Hill Cross Rd.)
This “Introductions and Orientation” session will be a first chance get to know fellow participants and figure out what directions we want to take with the youth panel! There will be snacks, but be sure to bring some of your own, along with a blanket and a journal for notes and ideas!
Check out their website for the orientation package and to sign up for the Group before the meeting! www.youthfoodnetwork.ca/
