To bring in the new year, we started off our 2018 season with a new kind of Forum event. On January 13th, in partnership with the Gulf Islands Secondary School (GISS) Student Council, we welcomed internationally successful 31-year old climate journalist/author Geoff Dembicki to discuss how youth around the world are fighting climate change.
Approximately two hundred students and members of the public attended this youth-led discussion. Dembicki spoke about how millions of youth can and are radically changing the world.
This was the first Salt Spring Forum event in partnership with the GISS Student Council. It will hopefully be one of many more to inspire, engage and empower young people to lead!
