Lead local initiatives in Calgary to positively affect environmental sustainability through engaging in student-led community events.
Hold fundraisers to engage with the public while supporting charities for sustainability.

Generations—growing, giving, gathering
Nurture community and transformation

What's Happening in SYC London?
London Ontario, the Forest City of Ontario, is the proud home to over 150,000 trees and the new Regional Chapter of Sustainable Youth Canada. Built on our core values of resilience, creativity, integrity, inclusiveness, and compassionate commitment towards common good, this new SYC Chapter is looking forward to inspiring the next generation of climate-changers in the battle against climate change. We are high school students active in our community.
We hope to educate youth of all ages about the importance of biodiversity and sustainable living, take part in initiatives to help our local community, and work with our community leaders to create changes city wide and provincially! We have began recruiting our amazing team of ambitious high school students, and are excited for what the future holds. So far, we have hosted events engaging youth for earth month and hosted community trash clean ups.
