An HNYC event partnered with UBC Faculty of Forestry
The HNYC Climate Change Case competition invites individual and self-organized high school students to engage in this exciting event, with a team of 3-5 to navigate the ins-and-outs of a provided case study to conduct research and build a presentation that will help Canada become carbon neutral.
In its second year, this competition is completely organized and managed by the youth members of HNYC. Participants will have the chance to research and present their ideas on how to balance Canada's environment and economy while transitioning towards sustainability. With growing concerns about unbalanced systems and the urgent need for a solution, this competition provides a platform for students to showcase their ideas and compete against peers with diverse perspectives.
The topic explores the 11th SDG of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: Sustainable Cities & Communities.
Topic: How to Make Canada a Carbon Neutral Country
As the strain on natural resources grows, governments, businesses, and the public are becoming increasingly concerned about the unbalanced systems in place. With nature at a breaking point and our reliance on these systems for daily life, it's essential to find a solution that balances both and transitions us towards sustainability efficiently and safely. With technology advancements and the need for action from both the public and government, there's a pressing need for a plan to make Canada carbon neutral.
