Four students along with two teachers from Paddle Prairie School attended Gener8 2019 in Canmore. The summit, which was put on by Inside Education, gave students the opportunity to explore the issues and possible solutions around climate change and alternative forms of energy. The four days were jam-packed with information from various speakers including the Deputy Minister of Environment and Parks, youth climate leaders in the province, as well as many other inspirational climate and energy leaders.
Throughout their time in Canmore, students worked on a plan to reduce climate change by learning about and participating in the solar panel project on the Paddle Prairie Metis Settlement. The students were also able to enjoy a performance from Peter Katz, dance the night away in Banff, and explore the newest innovative gadgets currently being developed. Upon returning to the community, students are excited about continuing to be leaders of climate change in Paddle Prairie and teaching others in the community about the topic.
Students: Easton Wanuch, Ethan Richarde, Aaliyah Lizotte, and Jadyn Farnell
Teachers: Julianne Cerna and Lucas Whittle
