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. However, after the 2020 pandemic, this chapter shut down its doors. We have a new regional director who is building her team. You can apply to her team by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV and cover letter.
The Calgary Region is typically 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 historically for members to become more involved in local sustainability. The region was 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 had been able to connect with professionals in the environmental and preservation industry, with potential to host further educational workshops and forums in the future. We hope to continue this work post-pandemic with a new team.
Director of Calgary: Denisa Lovin
Denisa Lovin is a high school graduate who is passionate about our environment and the beauty of nature. In the fall she is going to be attending Mount Royal University to get her Personal Fitness Trainer diploma. With this diploma she plans on being able to incorporate teaching others how you can be active in nature while taking care of one's self. She spends a lot of her time outdoors hiking in the mountains and going camping. During the spring and summer Denisa and her mom always garden together in the front and backyard, planting vegetables, fruits and flowers. She loves being able to eat food she planted, after watching it grow and nurturing it from just being a seed. Her priority is to make Calgary a cleaner and more sustainable environment, to make our future be surrounded by the beauty of nature and protect our environment. Denisa joined SYC with hopes to reach out to more individuals in Calgary in order to spread awareness about the environment and make a real positive change in making Calgary be more sustainable.
