2022 Youth Summit for Mother Earth

September 23 - September 25

Cedar, 2021 Youth Summit

We hope that the 2022 Youth Summit for Mother Earth can be hosted in-person with participation from youth across the province. The 2022 Summit will be held September 23-25, 2022. We will send sponsorship packages to Nature Network groups in June.

You may have heard that our beloved summit venue, YMCA Geneva Park, was sold this past year. We have been working to find a suitable location to host an in-person event, keeping COVID-19 restrictions in mind. We have been researching an appropriate venue that ensures the safety of youth, staff, chaperones, speakers, Elders, and their community members. We are still working to finalize the venue.

Highlights from 2021

From September 25 to 26, 2021 environmental leaders from across the province gathered virtually for cross-cultural learning and knowledge sharing. In partnership with the Youth Council, the Youth Circle for Mother Earth partners and Coordinating Circle, this re-imagined gathering brought 92 young leaders and 12 youth mentors together.

These youth represented 54 communities across Ontario from as far as Windsor, Ottawa and Kenora, with youth identifying from Indigenous communities across Turtle Island and cultures around the world. Youth also participated in group activities, outdoor challenges, virtual discussions and youth-led sessions on nature-inspired art, story sharing, Two-Eyed Seeing, climate action, environmental policy, biodiversity and networking.
