Girl’s Climate Leadership

What is Girl’s Climate Leadership?

When women and girls are empowered, we support a better life for all. GreenUP’s Girl’s Climate Leadership programs offer girl-identified youth (aged 10-13) the chance to build the skills and confidence needed to become climate leaders!

Led by incredible woman-identified and non-binary leaders at the forefront of the local climate movement, this summer leadership program will include a focus on:

  • Green Building, in partnership with the Endeavour Centre
  • Food Security, in partnership with Nourish
  • Cycling Skills, in partnership with B!KE and Active School Travel Peterborough
  • Climate Adaptation, in partnership with Ecology Park
  • Water Protection, in partnership with the Sacred Water Circle

NOTE: Participants must be able to ride their own bike independently. Bike and helmet required. If you need to borrow equipment, please email karen.okrafka@greenup.on.ca
