What is EcoBuzz?

The EcoBuzz Conference provides a fun venue for grade 6-12 students from the Peel Region to explore environmental issues concerning youth and to inspire student action projects with peer support.  Teachers are also invited to attend the conference.  The full day event focuses on educating and engaging youth to take initiative beyond the school with PEYA’s main theme of “Sustainability in our Communities”. PEYA offers support and resources to all students committed to take action within their schools and beyond. Every year, Ecobuzz engages over 400 youth, educators and local leaders!
