Mar 15 2012 - 12:00am to 2:00am

Starting in Corner Brooke, Newfoundland, and touring all the way to Vancouver, British Columbia, youth leaders and sustainability veterans will bring the community together to discuss the role of Canadians at the Earth Summit 2012 (United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, Rio+20).

In each city, interactive lectures will be held in universities, elementary schools, middle schools and high schools. This a unique opportunity to learn about the Earth Summit 2012, Canadian participation in and contributions to the global initiatives, and Canadian civil society's submission to the official United Nations' Zero Draft for the conference. The participants will have an opportunity to participate in dialogues, and take action to ensure proper representation of Canadians at the global stage.

The goal of the tour is to empower civil society by offering an analysis of current trends in sustainable development and to hold the microphone to Canadian voices as the world accelerates to the Earth Summit 2012. Read more about Dialogues and Action for Earth Summit 2012: We Canada Tour
