What's Going on in SYC Edmonton?
In the past year, the Edmonton region has focused on community engagement and policy development. SYC Edmonton's policy development has surrounded the recommendation and research towards the elimination of plastic bottles. The region is also currently working alongside City administration to investigate a business proposal to bring forth to City Council. In another project, SYC Edmonton is looking into food reduction and food sharing. Specifically, the region has been addressing the elimination of the amount of food waste through sharing and providing to people in need. Recently, a survey, where youth can mention their concerns and also submit in essays regarding sustainability, was also launched. Individuals of the youth community passionate about making a statement have been invited to share their story along with a photo of themselves.
