As part of the Youth-Led Development Project in Campbell River, a local artist and graphic facilitator (Jill Banting) created this visual representation of the Youth Action Committee’s vision for their city.
Since the kick off weekend workshop in October, the CR YAC has been meeting every two weeks to refine a Youth Charter for a Sustainable Campbell River, integrating feedback from their peers, and to provide project specific input for municipal department managers.
Issues identified by youth during the weekend workshop have been integrated as policy statements within the Campbell River Sustainable Official Community Plan and Sustainable Cities continues to develop a youth engagement strategy for the City, which will be completed in spring 2012.
It is great to see another Network city tapping into the energy and enthusiasm of young people to further their sustainability objectives!
Stay tuned for further updates…
