FAQs & Resources

Who can participate?

  • Secondary school students (youth aged of 14-19)

Can I register more than one team from my school?

  • Start with one team of 5. If you have more youth who are interested, email victoria@fabn.ca to let her know. She will let you know if there are spaces available the week before the event and provide next steps.

What is a Climate action Plan?

  • A plan to reduce climate change that you and your team can actually put into action in your school or community! During the Summit, we will guide you through the steps for developing your plan: defining goals, including partnerships, short and long term steps, costs, and measuring your success! You’ll have time to work with your team to develop your plan, and a network of contacts to reach out to if you run into snags while putting it into action.

What does “Interest Group” mean on the registration form?

  • If you wish to attend but are unable to do this through your school, you can organize your own team or attend as an individual.
