The Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) has recently provided a generous environmental donation of $20,000 to Pacific Peoples’ Partnership (PPP). PPP is thrilled to partner with RBC in moving towards United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 13: Climate Action.
In 2017, RBC achieved one of their most ambitious commitments ever: the RBC Blue Water Project. This is a 10-year global charitable commitment of $50 million to help provide access to drinkable, swimmable, fishable water, now and for future generations. As they look towards the future, RBC will continue to support water initiatives, and expand their focus to include climate action and support organizations like PPP.
PPP’s Climate Action Program for Indigenous Youth is being piloted in the summer of 2019 in the Victoria Capital Regional District in partnership with ECO Canada and RBC. This pilot will be delivered as a 4-day workshop with climate action curriculum for 15 Indigenous youth. If you would like to get involved and/or apply to attend, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or Rachel Wang email@example.com. A full update about the workshop will appear in the next edition of our newsletter.
Among other valuable legacies, this Climate Action Program for Indigenous Youth will provide a foundation and input for the 2020 RedTide: International Indigenous Climate Action Summit & Youth Conference being co-hosted by PPP on Vancouver Island.
