This April, university and high school students across the planet, along with civil society, decision makers, faith organizations and businesses, will tune into 100 events in fifty countries. Local Institutions will host regional webinars critical to our future.
Our event brings this international initiative to Toronto by hosting an interdisciplinary conversation about climate justice in our community. Our speakers are professionals and activists who use the science, push for policy and take action on climate change to create a more sustainable and just future. We want our entire community to join our discussion of local Canadian and Toronto solutions to the climate crisis we all face.
The theme for the event is Science. Policy. Action.
