AICBR is gearing up to host the next iteration of our youth training as part of the Yukon Indigenous Community Climate Change Champions (YIC4) Project. This training will welcome 24 First Nations youth (aged 16-30yrs) from communities across the territory to Whitehorse, January 21st-24th, 2019. Elders, scientists and experts from across Canada will guide youth in exploring the climate change crisis from both Indigenous and scientific ways of knowing and how we, as northern communities can adapt.
