The Alberta Youth Leaders for Environmental Education (AYLEE) Green Leaders Kit has been created by youth for youth across Alberta so that they can work toward a more sustainable future by making real change. Explore our suggestions for planning a climate related event, having climate conversations, and how you can make a meaningful difference by taking action. This kit is designed to be versatile and applicable in a variety of climate driven endeavours, so everyone is included. That's why we've curated resources to help us structure this toolkit into four of the most important parts of a climate movement: Learning & Getting Involved, Hosting an Event, Having Climate Conversations, and Taking Action.
