A New 4-day Interactive Workshop!
Pacific Peoples’ Partnership is proud to announce that, in collaboration with ECO Canada and with the support of the Royal Bank of Canada Foundation, we are presenting a brand new interactive training program in 2019 that will support the RedTide 2020 Climate Action Summit being held on Vancouver Island!
This brand new Climate Connect program will run daily in October 16-20th (tentative) for Indigenous youth ages 16 + in the Greater Victoria area. The program will be facilitated by Eli Enns, and feature special Guests including Elders, Climate Experts, and Ocean Network Canada Indigenous educators. Participants will also receive ECO Canada issued certificates and eligible graduates of this program may qualify for a new Wage Subsidy program, meaning your Employer could receive up to $15,000 to subsidize your environmental job position thanks to our partner ECO Canada!
Our goal is to increase climate literacy and inspire agency for Indigenous youth to become the next wave of change makers through clean technology, green entrepreneurship, creative arts, and cultural practice. With the help of amazing certified instructors and spiritual leaders, youth will learn through a cultural and scientific lens about local and traditional perspectives, aiding the understanding of the interconnected factors of climate change. This program also includes a field trip to the T’Sou-ke Nation, where the youth will get to see how water plays such an important role in the interconnectedness of climate change.
There are a maximum of 15 participants for this program, so if this sounds like something you would be interested in then please contact our Program Coordinator – Zachary Fenn, or fill out this form and reserve your spot before they’re gone!
