Investing in our youth is investing in the future. As a part of our community-based approach, AICBR engages youth to be involved with different aspects of research done in their community. By being directly involved with the research process, the youth learn new skills and work with their community-having opportunities to speak with and learn from Elders and other key members, share their own perspectives, and also learn from outside experts.
It is the youth and future generations who will be facing the greatest impacts from global issues such as climate change in the coming years, and they will be responsible for adapting to the changes. It is therefore essential to focus attention on building capacity with the youth so they are well prepared to face these issues.
