Innovate MY Future
Gathering and supporting youth to inspire climate leadership and civic change
Innovate MY Future brings together the GTHA’s leading social innovation organizations to inspire youth civic engagement in local climate change-related issues and needs. Participants receive structured climate leadership training from local experts, join a local team of 5 to run a community consultation, and participate in Evergreen’s youth lab process to plan and execute a 5-month climate change action project.
A final showcase event with youth was held in February 2020 featuring youth projects, best practices in engaging youth in civic action and decision-making and connecting participants with leading municipal and corporate sustainability partners.
This program is created in partnership with Youth Challenge International and funded by the Government of Canada under the Canada Service Corps program.
