Highlight: We all learn the ABCs of sustainable development in school, but just how many of us take to actively weaving sustainability into our present as a part of what we owe to the earth and to the future of the generations to come. The ImaGENation clean energy program invites indigenous youth across Canada between the ages of 18-30 with a clean energy project idea. Selected applicants of this clean energy program, forming a cohort of 10 teams, will be enrolled in an 18-month program where they will be provided with mentorship, coaching, cultural support, and a guaranteed $10,000 award to successfully bring a clean energy project idea to life. You can apply for this clean energy program as a team of 2-5 members or a solo member committed to achieving project goals. During this clean energy program, you will be put in an ecosystem that encourages discussion and community. Project themes for this clean energy program are centered around specific infrastructure solutions that impact the indigenous community. Some of the classifications include Renewable Projects, Energy Efficiency, Climate and Environment, etc. More info on the clean energy program can be found here.
