We just watched world leaders struggle to come to a consensus on how to tackle the climate crisis at COP26. With climate action consistently being a top priority for youth and the lack of commitment probably has you a little frustrated. So let’s talk.
We're putting together a panel of young people from Canada who were just in Glasgow to learn what it was like to be on the frontlines of the climate battle, what they're bringing back, and what we can all do next. Join us for what's definitely going to be an exciting and passionate conversation.
PS: You can opt out of being included in breakout rooms. Just tick the box when signing up.
Sarah Hanson is Anishinaabe from Biigtigong Nishnaabeg, currently living and working on the traditional lands of the Fort William First Nation, currently referred to as Thunder Bay. She went to COP26 with Indigenous Climate Action but that's only one of her many gigs. She's also involved with Youth4Nature, Leading Change and Experiences Canada. When not working, Sarah loves to bead, sew, learn Anishinaabemowin, and re-explore her traditional lands along the north shore of Lake Superior.
Kat Cadungog is the Executive Director of Foundation for Environmental Stewardship (FES). She has collaborated with youth across what’s currently referred to as Canada in over 50 Action Projects in remote, rural, and Indigenous communities at 3% Project, worked with post-secondary students through FES’ SDGs program, and launched The Youth Harbour, a youth-for-youth climate support system offering funding, skill training, and networking opportunities for youth. In her spare time, you can find Kat hiking, bike-packing, quoting The Office, playing Dungeons and Dragons, or making public declarations that she will stop drinking coffee.
