What is the Youth Climate Alliance?
The Youth Climate Alliance is a group of grade 9-12 students who will work together to better understand climate change and its impacts. Through a series of workshops and training, the Youth Climate Alliance aims to host events “by and for” youth.
The goal of the Youth Climate Alliance is to give youth an avenue to pursue their climate change advocacies and have their voices heard.
This initiative is presented by the Manitoba Museum in partnership with GenAction, a project funded by the Government of Canada’s Climate Action and Awareness Fund that aims to empower youth to take action on climate change and inspire them to become leaders in their community.
- Youth who live in Winnipeg and are between the ages 14-18 (grade 9-12).
- Youth who are passionate about their environment.
- Youth who are committed to combat climate change.
- Youth who are happy to be working as part of a team.
