Calling All Youth Environmental Leaders
Not only did they raise awareness about sustainable buildings and give their school a “Green Makeover”, they were able to encourage the entire student body to get involved.
The outcome was a more energy efficient and ecological school environment.
The Jack Leslie Youth Environment Grant is now accepting applications.
The Grant was initiated in 2004 by The City of Calgary in partnership with the Mayor’s Youth Council (part of Youth Central) and the Parks Foundation to recognize former Mayor of Calgary, Jack Leslie. It recognizes the positive impact Jack made to the city and the environment and encourages youth in Calgary to continue with his efforts.
The Grant helps youth develop environmental projects. Each year, two projects receive up to $1,000 to support project implementation and sustainment.
