Youth week in action

Join the Youth Climate Week of Action which offers an engaging series of workshops, webinars, and activities from Sept 11 to 15.

In the lead up to the Global Climate Strike on Sept. 15, we invite you to celebrate, support and amplify youth-led climate action. Our Youth Climate Week of Action offers an engaging series of workshops, webinars and activities all about challenging business as usual in order to address the climate crisis. We as a generation need to stand up for our future: fight against the fossil fuel industry, resist the development of new pipelines & extractivist practices, and confront false solutions powered by green capitalism.

WEEK OF ACTION SCHEDULE:

Day #1: “Love, Compassion, & Local Climate Action” talk, conversation, and Q&A

  • September 11, 7:00pm – 8:15pm EDT
  • Speakers: Christine Boyle, Janelle Lapointe
  • Join us for a talk & conversation about the potential of pathological love as a remedy to pathological profit and power as well as the role of cities (municipal & local climate action) in the climate fight, and how they might uniquely be able to catalyze the end to the fossil fuel era. Last but not least, we will have an extended Q&A and discussion with the speakers, don’t miss out!
