Thanks for sharing this Christabel, this is an important issue and opportunity that is all to often over looked.
Youth are the future. I remember as a child learning how to recycle in grade school and going home to teach my parents how to use the blue box in our home. Now look at how people recycle, its just part of how we manage our homes. It's a simple example from a place of privilege but can be seen in all elements of society.
Engaging and empowering youth is important work. I'm glad that progressive people like Sarah Blyth are creating change in the system to not only talk about but actually implement change to improve how we do things systemically in our city. It's a small step but an important one.
In what other ways can youth be engaged in our city? Do you have any ideas?
