Youth making differences

Youth making differences

The UN General Assembly is calling for the youth of the world to have a place in charting the course towards healthier communities as part of International Youth Day, celebrated on August 12 this year.

At the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC), we believe in building opportunities for Canadians of all ages to connect with and care for our natural places.
