About Innovate MY Future
Youth Challenge International’s Innovate MY Future program offers Canadian youth in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area the opportunity to design youth-led projects addressing local climate issues and make a real difference in their communities.
Addressing climate change requires creative, local solutions and social innovation. At Youth Challenge International (YCI), we know that youth are powerful agents of change, driven to shape their communities, cities and futures.
The Innovate MY Future program inspires young people to be engaged citizens, climate leaders and innovators who effectively respond to local climate change issues and needs, building resilient communities alongside our partners.
Our world and realities are rapidly changing – now more than ever, we need actionable and creative solutions to curb climate change and continue climate action momentum, creating a #betterthannormal future.
Join us in the global movement combatting climate change, starting in your own community. Dive into these questions and more with YCI’s Innovate MY Future program in this opportunity to learn and partner with a team of peers to create positive change in your community.
