What's Going on in SYC Calgary?
The Calgary region of Sustainable Youth Canada was established in February 2016 and has since been growing in community engagement and membership. The Calgary Region is overseen by a committee comprised of nine executives, meeting locally in order to best serve the youth community of Calgary to become involved in sustainability. The regional committee markets the presence of SYC throughout high schools in Calgary and other youth organizations in the region.
Sustainability engagement events were held throughout the past year for members to become more involved in local sustainability. The region has connected with Parks Calgary, Calgary River Valleys, Green Calgary, and S2G+ Preservation Society to provide volunteering and educational opportunities for members, including: river clean up, tree wiring, vegetation and weed management, and workshops. Through these opportunities, the region has been able to connect with professionals in the environmental and preservation industry, with potential to host further educational workshops and forums in the future.
In the coming months and in preparation for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year, SYC Calgary will be continuing to expand the organization's reach and membership in the community while continuing to provide engagement opportunities for current members.
