Starting in Corner Brook, Newfoundland and Labrador, and touring across the country to Victoria, British Columbia, youth leaders and sustainability veterans will bring the community together to discuss the role of Canadians at the Earth Summit 2012 (United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, Rio+20). Visit us at www.wecanada.org for more info!
In each city, interactive lectures will be held in universities, elementary schools, middle schools and high schools. This a unique opportunity to learn about the Earth Summit 2012, Canadian participation in and contributions to the global initiatives, and Canadian civil society's submission to the official United Nations' Zero Draft for the conference. The participants will have an opportunity to dialogue, and take action to ensure proper representation of Canadians at the global stage.
The goal of the tour is to empower civil society by offering an analysis of current trends in sustainable development and to hold the microphone to Canadian voices as the world accelerates to the Earth Summit 2012.
