November 2017, 29 Indigenous youth from Yukon, Northern BC, Northwest Territories, and Nunatsiavut and some Yukon Renewable Resources Council (RRC) members came together in Whitehorse for a four-day training on climate change. This training is part of a two-year initiative training community climate change champions. To learn more about the project visit the project page here.

A Newsletter on the training outcomes so far has been released! Download it here!

A HUGE thank you to all the Youth, Elders, RRC members and trainers who took part in the training!
