The Climate Collective project, coordinated by the MUN Johnson Geo Centre, began in early 2021. This pilot project is designed to connect youth with opportunities to learn about climate change, connect with NL's green sector, and access innovative hands-on learning materials. The project's overarching goal is to equip youth with the knowledge and networks needed to take climate action in their communities.
After multiple virtual events over the past two years, Climate Collective is excited to host our first in-person Youth Climate Summit at the Geo Centre in January 2023, made possible by support from the Big Splash Fund. This oceans-themed summit will bring together youth and MUN researchers, NGOs, and green practitioners to explore how our oceans are changing here in Newfoundland and Labrador. It will also include a climate action planning workshop, where youth can discuss and share ideas of potential actions they could take to help their communities as they adjust to changing oceans.
