Youth Projects Awarded Funding to Tackle Climate Change

From gardens to rug hooking, the 2021 Youth Engagement Funding Initiative supports projects related to climate change.

We are so excited for the launch of these amazing projects funded by CCNL’s Youth Engagement Funding Initiative. This funding is for climate change-related projects that involve youth, and wow, did we receive some seriously cool proposals. We just have to share some of our successful applications with you!

The Corner Brook Regional High School Student Council is planting apple trees on the grounds of their school for all the enjoy! Plus, they’re organizing a contest to name the trees.

The Carbonear Academy Gender and Sexuality Alliance (GSA) is hosting a tie-dye and rug hooking event using repurposed textiles and homemade dyes. We love that the GSA is combining their creativity with education about reducing consumption!

The Earth Club at Mushuau Innu Natuashish School is creating a Memorial Garden at the playground adjacent to their school. This Memorial Garden is intended to strengthen the community’s connection to nature and provide a tranquil place for reflection.

The LEARN Program at Holy Heart High School is creating an indoor hydroponic garden. We can’t wait to see what they grow!
