Global Rewind: Being Green as a Quaranteen

This event is for high school students only (including graduating grade 12 students).

Do you want to discover environmentally conscious choices you can make at home and learn about societal decisions pertaining to the environment?

Come together with other high school students from across Metro Vancouver in an exciting afternoon of Kahoot!, activities and conversations that explore sustainable city planning, personal food planning, environmental politics and ways to garden in confined spaces!

Every year, local change makers gather to engage high school students in thought-provoking discussions and hands-on experiences that ignite a passion to take community-based actions and build a thriving, sustainable future. This student-led gathering is Global Rewind, a FREE event co-hosted by Metro Vancouver's Youth4Action team and Science World's Teen Advisory Group.
