Power Summer Is Coming! Register Now!

“Power never takes a back step-only in the face of more power” -Malcolm X

For that reason the Canadian Youth Climate Coalition is taking matters into its own hands. Check out a message below from CYCC and get involved with this awesome initiative.

Imagine hundreds of youth from the Pacific to the Atlantic and up to the Arctic Circle trained, prepped and ready to take action for their future and our climate. Pretty great huh?

Well, we imagined it earlier this year, and this summer we are making it a reality. Throughout July and August the Canadian Youth Climate Coalition will be holding Power Summer camps in communities across Canada. At each camp we will provide training in all the skills you need to become the change that our generation needs to see in the world. From creative non-violent action training, to popular education tools and training (we’ll even teach you to give a Climate Justice 101 workshop!) and including training in various organizing skills you need to build up and win campaigns in your community, these camps are a whole lot of action packed into a few days.

The schedule for the summer is:

July 8-9-10th: Center for Northern Families & Nearby, Yellowknife NWT Facebook

July 15-16-17: Camp Meywasin, Wabamun AB (near Edmonton) Facebook 

July 22-23-24: Camp Byng, Sunshine Coast, BC (just outside of Vancouver) Facebook

August 12-13-14: Harold T. Barrett Fun Forest Camp, Beaverbank, NS Facebook

August 19-20-21: Unicamp, Outside of Toronto, ON Facebook 

August 26-27-28: McGill Outdoors Club House, Outside of Montreal, QC Facebook

*Camps start Friday morning and run until Sunday afternoon (subject to change), and the camp locations are open as of Thursday afternoon.
