Maybe you’ve started asking questions like this:
How can we, as students, spark long-term
change in our schools’ culture, extracurricular
activities, and teaching?
The good news is that student action can lead to a lot of change, as evidenced by the Montreal Youth Summit on Sustainable Business, Canada’s largest student-led event of its kind with 500 participants & 45 speakers, the push for the first Quebec Roundtables on Sustainable Finance Education, or the creation of new courses thanks to the advocacy and contribution of student groups.
We’ve gathered some of Canada’s top student leaders to share their experiences, and we’ve researched best international practices in student organizing on sustainability.
