When & Where
Great Bear Rainforest Youth Paddle
~Coastal youth coming together to celebrate their land and say NO to tankers~
After two incredible experiences in the Great Bear Rainforest, and learning about the threats of an oil spill on the BC coast, Magdalena and a team or university students are organizing a paddle to protest the proposed Enbridge pipeline. The group, along with youth from the Gitga'at community of Hartley Bay, will come together on a four day canoe journey in BC's Great Bear Rainforest, to celebrate the region and to say NO to oil supertankers. Through fundrasing events, concerts, documentary screenings and presentations, the GBR Youth Paddle aims to raise awareness about the potential threat of an oil spill and to engage youth to take action and to promote a sustainable future.
