Youth learn about the intersection of climate change and human rights

On November 7, the Museum was filled with young climate advocates attending workshops focused on taking action to protect our planet.

As part of the day, students like Alexa Caymo (pictured below) explored the Climate Justice exhibition to learn about the connections between climate change and human rights.

Alexa had never visited the Museum before and found it inspiring to see the 40-foot banner designed by Ocean Hyland, a young Tsleil‐Waututh artist, which is part of the exhibition.

She left the event excited to share what she had learned and gave this advice: “Take action. Even if you think that your action is small, it will account for something bigger. And we’re able to do this when we’re working together.”

This event was hosted by Learning for a Sustainable Future.
