Imagine hundreds of youth from the Pacific to the Atlantic and up to the Arctic Circle trained, prepped and ready to take action for their future and our climate. Pretty great huh?
Well, we imagined it earlier this year, and this summer we are making it a reality. Throughout July and August the Canadian Youth Climate Coalition will be holding Power Summer camps in communities across Canada. At each camp we will provide training in all the skills you need to become the change that our generation needs to see in the world. From creative non-violent action training, to popular education tools and training (we’ll even teach you to give a Climate Justice 101 workshop!) and including training in various organizing skills you need to build up and win campaigns in your community, these camps are a whole lot of action packed into a few days.
The schedule for the summer is:
July 8-9-10th: Center for Northern Families & Nearby, Yellowknife NWT Facebook
July 15-16-17: Camp Meywasin, Wabamun AB (near Edmonton) Facebook
July 22-23-24: Camp Byng, Sunshine Coast, BC (just outside of Vancouver) Facebook
August 12-13-14: Harold T. Barrett Fun Forest Camp, Beaverbank, NS Facebook
August 19-20-21: Unicamp, Outside of Toronto, ON Facebook
