Approximately 1,000 youth from across Canada will come together for this unprecedented weekend of environmental education, leadership, and action.

The Beyond Green Youth Summit will feature a range of engaging speakers, such as environmental adviser Tzepora Berman; award-winning radio broadcaster and urban revitalization strategist Majora Carter; filmmaker, author and daughter of GreenPeace founder Emily Hunter; and clean energy champion Tom Rand.
