YELP Inviting Conversations Around Environmental Action

Sep 18 was an action packed day for the Youth Environmental Leadership Program (YELP)'s volunteers and participants. 

We started our day at Open Streets Toronto.

We set up a selfie booth and invited people to talk about what they think environmental actions mean. Then, we invited them to write down their commitment to the environment and encouraged them to post their selfies on social media.

We took a lot of photos of those who stopped by our booth! Everyone had fun chatting and some also loved the idea of dressing up.

Next, we moved to Spadina Museum for City Cider, organised by Not Far From the Tree. This is an annual family-friendly event running for its sixth year. It celebrates the wonders of nature's offer of fruit and food and other delights, such as fresh made apple cider!

There, we got more people into the conversation. And of course, we took more photos and selfies!

We also gave out a list of upcoming environmental activities and events happening in Toronto! Thanks Nairy for putting that list together!

Thanks YELP leaders and volunteers for your dedication! Whitney (not in photo) and the following:
