IDRC and Environment and Climate Change Canada are co-hosting a special panel with youth climate leaders at the 2020 Canadian Science Policy Conference.
Youth are making their voices heard and leveraging their agency to push for much-needed change to advance the fight against climate change.
Be inspired by young influencers from Canada, Africa, and Latin America who will share their perspectives and experiences on climate action. They will offer innovative solutions to curb the climate crisis and inspire actors, researchers, and decision-makers.
