The pursuit of climate justice has emerged as one of the most important and urgent global issues of our time, and the voices of youth have risen as a powerful force in organizing for change.
Our 2019 cohort of the North Vancouver-Lonsdale MLA’s Youth Leadership Council on Climate Action demonstrated the initiative that high school students are capable of taking to bring people together on the issues that matter to them when given the platform to do so. By lifting up the voices of young people, we enable their efforts to create community around an issue that fundamentally impacts their futures.
That’s why I will be supporting the Sustainabiliteens in establishing a North Shore Chapter of their School Collective Program this year in lieu of creating a 2020 cohort of the North Vancouver-Lonsdale MLA’s Youth Leadership Council.
Grade 10, 11, and 12 high school students are invited to join the Sustainabiliteens: North Shore Chapter. This will be an independent youth-led community group with full autonomy over their organizing activities and structure that aims to “create systemic change from a foundation of a strong community”.
