Thunder Bay is a high school region of Sustainable Youth Canada. As one of the newest region of SYC, it consists of dedicated high school and university youth who work together to:
Establish and maintain the Canadian Sustainable Youth Registry to connect passionate youth with sustainability opportunities in Thunder Bay.
Lead local initiatives to positively affect energy and environmental sustainability through engaging in student-led community events.
Hold fundraisers to engage with the public while supporting charities for sustainability.
Partner with local organizations to bridge the gap between partner organizations seeking assistance and youth volunteers seeking oppurtunities to get involved with sustainability.
We are always seeking new members to volunteer with us, so if you are interested in getting involved, please register here. We look forward to having you join us!
What's Happening in SYC Thunder Bay?
2017 marks the second year of the Thunder Bay Region of Sustainable Youth Canada. In the past year, SYC Thunder Bay has worked on community outreach and planning of a Sustainability Fair. This year SYC Thunder Bay is looking forward to once again participate at the Northwestern Ontario Regional Science Fair. Through the science fair, SYC Thunder Bay is excited to engage with the students about sustainability.
Recently, SYC Thunder Bay has established a partnership with a local environmental organization, Eco Superior, and are working to connect with the Fort William First Nation Youth Council. Planning for a Sustainability Fair, with a focus on sustainable food and agriculture, happening in Mid-June is also underway. The Sustainability Fair will include several interactive activities, and an exciting line-up of local speakers. As well, there will be a panel made up of members of the executive committee to discuss their areas of interest pertaining to sustainable agriculture and food, and a Q&A session with the attendees.
SYC Thunder Bay will be continuously looking towards creating partnerships with more local environmental organizations, and expand member outreach in Thunder Bay. The region hopes to invite many of these organizations to attend our fair and set up a booth, to create interest and awareness about our organization.
The Thunder Bay region is currently looking to formalize it's leadership structure by establishing a steering committee that will lead events and fundraisers, while maintaining the Canadian Sustainable Youth Registry for the region.
