A call to passionate, motivated youth who are looking for an opportunity to make a difference.
The Natural Step Canada and the Co-operators are offering the IMPACT! Sustainability Champions Training program to youth across Canada who care about sustainability and want to make a difference in their community. Participants will deepen their sustainability understanding, enhance their confidence as leaders, and be empowered to develop or advance meaningful sustainability projects and social enterprises.
This is a one-of-a-kind program focused on empowering youth to be real and effective agents for positive change in their communities. National in scope, it brings together a diverse range of youth with a unique blend of talents and knowledge who share a passion for sustainability.
The program is anchored by a three-day in-person workshop in several regions across Canada. Following the workshop, each participant is expected to develop and implement a local sustainability project or social enterprise that will help improve their community.
