In Vancouver, we draw from young leaders in a variety of private, public, and non-profit sectors to help solve some of our city’s biggest challenges and drive the local implementation of WEF initiatives.
The Pan-Canadian Climate Campaign
A national initiative to raise the profile of climate change, increase youth awareness and engagement ahead of the federal election, and create opportunities for storytelling and intergenerational learning to drive climate action across the country.
100 Debates on the Environment
On October 3, 2019, voters in Vancouver Granville will hear candidates’ best ideas and proposals for the environment. It will be one of over 100 debates being held in communities nationwide. The debates will demonstrate to politicians that the environment needs to be front and center this election and will reinforce polling that indicates the environment is a top issue for voters.
FutureProof2030 is a program designed to identify key trends and needs for young generations in the Greater Vancouver Area as we envision what the future of our city could look like in 2030. Our goal is to leverage these views as we engage with organizations from the public and private sector, not-for-profits, and global partners to influence change and help prioritize actions that address some of the most pressing needs of our youth in the future.
The Burnout Project
An adaptive series of workshops for young people to explore themes relating to preventing and managing burnout, self-care and doing socially impactful work in challenging times.
Shaping Cascadia is a cross-border initiative with the Seattle Shapers Hub to bring the voices of young leaders into the business, government, education, and innovation partnerships that are stitching BC, Washington, and Oregon as a unique global economic megaregion.
