Climate Action Cohort (Students on Ice)
We are bridging the gaps between policy decisions, community action and youth engagement while empowering the next generation of climate leaders.
In partnership with Students on Ice (SOI), and with the generous support of the Lawson Foundation, we are working to equip 3 cohorts of SOI alumni with the tools and opportunities to take climate action in their communities and on the international stage. We will support 10 participants between the ages of 18 and 25 from across Canada every year until 2021.
Through team retreats, independent project implementation and participation at United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) meetings, they will learn about climate change policy, issues and projects; learn leadership and project development skills; and be empowered and supported in the design and implementation of both personal community projects and group practices.
