The Youth Environmental Network held a conference titled "In the RED ZONE: Youth Action, Climate Crisis, and COVID19" on Saturday, March 6th.
  • To start off the conference Tracey Wade spoke on climate change in a global context, then Antoine Zboralski gave a presentation on climate change in New Brunswick.
  • San Lin and Becca Hamilton then presented on Climate Justice and this was followed by Catherine Gauthier's presentation on EnJeu, which has an active climate change case against the government.
  • The Crandall University Biology Society, EOS Eco-Energy, Hampton High School Climate Action Group, and La Fédération des jeunes francophones du Nouveau-Brunswick participated in our rapid fire by giving 3-minute presentations on their climate-related initiatives.
  • In the breakout rooms Cory Herc from #RisingYouth held a workshop on building ideas, Natacha Vautour discussed the environmentally-friendly projects carried out by Brilliant Labs, Fossil Free Lakehead and Fossil Free UNB had a panel discussion on divestment, and Laura Myers and Chris Rendell presented on the multiple green projects they have worked on in Hampton (food forest, climate action group, and more!).

We encourage you to contact the Youth Environmental Network with any ideas for events, projects, or other initiatives related to climate change and the environment! We can be reached at or through our social media accounts.
