“The importance of the Indigenous Youth Voices Panel is to educate students, youth, and the public about the roles Indigenous youth have on raising the truths about climate change in Canada and in the world. Having an Indigenous perspective on climate change in political, educational, and societal conversations ensures that our voices are being heard and valued, and to make it blantanly clear that the responsibility of climate action lies within us all.” – Jesslyn Friday, LDSB Indigenous Student Trustee
