Annual Sierra Youth Coalition (SYC) Conference

January 22, 2010 - 7:00am to January 24, 2010 - 7:00am

Rationale for the Conference

The Sierra Youth Coalition (SYC) is the youth arm of the Sierra Club working towards local sustainability. This is hugely beneficial because geographical areas face similar issues locally and work together as a network of individuals (environmentalists) and collectives (organizations). The goal of this conference is to educate all interested students from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia and provide them with tangible skills and opportunities to get involved in the green movement. Ultimately this conference provides the means to develop the knowledge and ability to work towards a more sustainable future. Please join us for a fun-filled weekend including very interesting workshops and seminars. This is a great opportunity to meet and network with students interested in similar issues as yourself!

Hosted by the Students' Union's ECOS

Fees: $30 before Jan 5th, 2010, $50 for non-SYC members after Jan 5th
