Starting later this month, Earth Matters will be launching a new project for youth 15-25 to get hands on with waste reduction.

This project will involve the development of youth-driven re-use action plans, wherein materials will be diverted from waste streams and given new life.

The project will be happening in Nelson and participants can sign up by emailing youth@nelsoncares.ca.

Youth facing barriers are encouraged to apply — the project aims to be as accessible as possible.

The project will run from September until December and is free to participate in.

Action plans will be created through a youth-driven process. The possibilities are only limited by the imagination and passion of participants. Youth will also create media and public education materials from their experiences.

This project is made possible with generous support from Columbia Basin Trust, Regional District of Central Kootenay, Nelson and District Credit Union, BC Hydro and TD Bank.

Earth Matters is a program of the Nelson CARES Society.
