Climate Collective is all about climate innovation and youth empowerment. We want to provide young people with opportunities to learn about climate innovation and take part in it. We want to show that youth from this province can be part of the global climate solution, and that they can be a part of this solution no matter what subjects they are interested in. This is why we chose to include the acronym STEAM in the project title. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. So, no matter their strengths or interests, they can find a link into climate solutions.
We want to motivate youth by connecting them with members from our Sector Collaboration Network that are involved in climate innovation, and giving them opportunities for workshops and mentorship sessions. We are also helping youth host annual Regional and Provincial Youth Climate Summits.
