Yukon Youth Panel on Climate Change Recommendations
The Yukon Youth Panel on Climate Change prioritizes reconnection and sustainable relationships with the land and people to ensure that social and economic systems are based on reciprocity and supported by ecological integrity. Overall, this results in a changed mindset and way of living to sustain a healthy planet.
Below are the final recommendations the first cohort of the Yukon Youth Panel on Climate Change has created to embolden the Yukon Government’s climate action plan. These recommendations are the result of months of engagement with other youth across the territory, as well as conversations with Elders, experts, and other community members. Our Recommendations, Our Future is a living document — these recommendations are not intended to be static, but rather to be the beginning of more meaningful conversations, relationship-building, and a greater voice for youth around climate action in the Yukon.
