About the Event:

Virtual Session III will provide a forum to discuss the important role Indigenous youth can and should play in broader  efforts of the climate movement. The aim is to both inspire youth advocacy, provide empowering information through a panel discussion on what works in youth advocacy, and share ways to build programs to introduce youth to culture and traditions. The aim is to invest in our Indigenous youth now as a forward-looking strategy for effecting long-term change.
