Generation Green hosts conference for Burlington, Milton, Oakville students in Grades 7-12


Published February 7, 2023 at 1:57 pm

An initiative to help the younger generation continue to ‘Think Green’ is hosting a conference next week.

Generation Green is a youth-led initiative to engage Halton students in climate action leadership and support them in their commitment to greenhouse gas emission reductions to drive change and action in their communities.

Students in Grades 7 to 12 are provided with the tools, resources, and inspiration to reduce Halton’s carbon footprint. In additions, students can earn 20 community involvement hours.

The Generation Green program consists of three phases: a conference in February, a student project on climate action in March to May, and a project showcase where students come together to share and celebrate their projects with peers in June.

This year’s Generation Green Youth Conference theme is Mobilizing Collective Impact through Community Action and aims to raise awareness about communities’ shared responsibilities to take climate action that is intergenerational, intersectoral and inclusive.

Students attending the free event will participate in hands-on workshops, meet engaging speakers, and network with like-minded individuals.

Students will learn more about the Generation Green 2023 project to engage their communities in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The conference is Friday Feb. 17, a PA Day, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with lunch provided, at Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre, 2302 Bridge Rd. in Oakville
