Starting climate change conversation with youth challenge

Posted On Monday September 20, 2021

Cornwall youth: show us climate change!

Future Climate Leaders and the City of Cornwall are challenging youth to share a photo, video, poem, or piece of art they’ve created that shows us how climate change affects them.

“What does climate change look like? How do you fight it? How do you adapt to it? We want to see how youth  in Cornwall are experiencing climate change. I think this is a unique way for youth to express themselves, show their concerns, and share their stories,” said Angela Parker, the City of Cornwall’s Sustainability Project Coordinator.

Submit your entry and learn more on the City’s public engagement website.

Future Climate Leaders, an initiative by the St. Lawrence River Institute of Environmental Sciences, aims to increase public awareness about climate change – and encourage the community with information to support a climate change solution.

Lee Theodore is the project coordinator for Future Climate Leaders.

“FCL pleased to be partnering with the City on this public engagement initiative,” said Theodore.

The challenge runs from September 20 to November 20. The project team hopes this challenge kicks off the conversation about climate change – just in time for a survey, which will launch on September 29.

The survey will also be available on the City’s public engagement website.
