Youth Climate Action Forum

As a City Council Strategic Priority Event, Councillors Sarina Gersher and Mairin Loewen hosted a Youth Climate Action Forum for grade 8 to 12 students on October 30, 2019. Over 140 students participated in the event. This event looked to build capacity for youth to engage on climate issues in Saskatoon. Youth bring important voices and energy to climate change conversations and actions, but are often missing in the more formal decision-making processes.
