YCI Presents: Climate Action Summit

Event Summary

Learn about climate action initiatives in the GTHA, explore opportunities to get involved and network with community climate leaders!

Event Details

Join us at the Centre for Social Innovation for an exciting evening of celebrating climate action across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) with leaders from government, business and local organizations, including YCI’s own Climate Action Catalysts. For the past 8 months, these young leaders have studied human-centred design and created climate action projects rooted in community well-being through YCI’s Innovate MY Future program on topics including food waste, active transportation, flood resilience, sustainable fashion, energy efficiency and more.

The event includes:

  • A Climate Action Catalyst project showcase. An exhibition of impactful climate action projects created by youth across the GTHA through YCI’s Innovate MY Future program.
  • Workshops. A series of educational and interactive workshops on sustainability topics led by young climate leaders.
  • Networking. A space for current and future climate leaders to mix and mingle, learn about opportunities and get involved in local climate action.
  • Dinner, prize raffle + more! Enjoy a locally catered, eco-conscious meal as you explore the event. Plus, one lucky attendee will receive a Patagonia prize pack!
