Join this special Brown Bag Lunch to dig deeper into the challenges and opportunities for youth, especially international students and newcomers, in entering Canada’s sustainability sector. You’ll hear directly from young climate leaders and leave with valuable insights on how to make green jobs more accessible to everyone.
