Amazing Green Race

PEYA’s Amazing Green Race is HERE!

 What is the Amazing Green Race?

The Amazing Green Race provides youth in the Peel Region with various resources and strategies to support the environment, sustainable commuting and healthy living. Youth will participate in fun and engaging activities that will help them recognize the benefits of using various modes of sustainable transportation available to them. Youth teams will race from checkpoint to checkpoint and learn about waste reduction, sustainable and active transportation, ecology and stewardship across the City of Mississauga (provided with $10 loaded presto cards).  After the race is completed, everyone will meet at the finish line for an environmental celebration! Here teams will be provided with delicious food and will have the opportunity to meet with peers from other schools, network with professionals from the environmental industry, and win great prizes for their team! Teams should have 3-5 members between the ages of 13-24.
