The convergence will feature workshops, keynote speakers, and panel discussions on how we, as a collective youth movement, can take action to address the climate crisis.
Be prepared to learn about the history of social movements; how to start a campaign from scratch; how to influence decision makers; and how Canada can transition to a renewable energy economy. We will learn from our peers, elders, and experts alike. We will dig deep into discussions on topics including fracking, pipeline politics, Indigenous sovereignty, divestment, and green jobs. We will learn how to make lasting change through community organizing, direct action, art, storytelling, and using traditional and digital media.
We will learn from each other, learn together, and develop common strategies for creating positive change. We will also have fun – at social events, through interactive art spaces, by listening to inspiring speakers, and engaging with talented performers.
And once the convergence is over, our movement will continue to grow in newly-formed networks and through shared actions. Together, we will convene to build a long-lasting, diverse, and intersectional youth climate justice movement.
