This event is part of a series of in-person and online events that the Impact Lab at the University of Toronto is organizing as a part of the Youth Climate Action in Toronto project (or YCAT), funded by the City of Toronto and the University of Toronto Climate Positive Energy Initiative. We’re running a series of engagements and consultations to develop a Youth Climate Action Engagement Strategy that will be adopted by the City of Toronto. Each event invites participants to share their thoughts and ideas around their visions of and needs for a climate just future in the city of Toronto. These insights will be used to inform research and policy by the Impact Lab, the City of Toronto, and other program stakeholders. Feel free to reach out to us at youthclimateactionintoronto@gmail.com or on Instagram @youthclimateactiontoronto if you have any questions!
