Young Activists Invited to Participate in New Boot Camp for Climate Justice

OTTAWA (Ontario), Wednesday, January 29, 2020 – Addressing climate change can be daunting, but a new course at Saint Paul University (SPU) seeks to provide local youth with the skills they need to make a positive changes for the environment.

“Whether you’re interested and curious, or passionately committed, this course is for anyone who wants to take action on climate change,” explains Amanda Wilson, lead professor for the Spring-Break Boot Camp: Organizing for Climate Justice.

Organized by SPU’s Elizabeth Bruyère School of Social Innovation, the boot camp is open to students currently enrolled in ― or who have recently completed ― high school or CEGEP.

From March 16 to March 21, students will learn about the key actors, systems and issues related to climate change. Students will also participate in workshop and collaborative projects to develop skills in citizen science, community organizing and political advocacy.

“Our goal is to help young people gain the knowledge and tools they need to be more confident in their contributions to climate justice efforts,” says Wilson.

For those students who wish to get a jump-start on their post-secondary education, the Spring-Break Boot Camp may also be taken for university credits.
