The provincial Government is now accepting applications for a special Youth Advisory Council that will allow young Manitobans the opportunity to offer their insight and perspective on the issue of climate change.
The Council will work closely with the Expert Advisory Committee which makes recommendations directly to the Minister of Conservation and Climate. They will select up to nine youth members to serve a one year term starting this month. Applicants must be between 15 and 25 years of age on November 10th, represent the diversity of Manitoba, be knowledgeable about issues related to the Manitoba Climate and Green Plan, demonstrate a proven interest in environmental issues and community engagement and be able to engage in respectful open discussion and be tolerant of conflicting viewpoints.
For information and to fill out an application form visit their website www.manitoba.ca/climateandgreenplan/yac.html. The deadline is Sunday.
