What is EcoBuzz?

The EcoBuzz Conference provides a fun venue for Peel middle and secondary school students as well as teachers to explore environmental issues concerning youth and to inspire student action projects with peer support.  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”.

Conference Vibe, Workshops and Exhibits

The EcoBuzz Conference continues its focus on the PEYA theme of “Sustainability in our Communities”. The Conference is about empowering students to take action beyond the school, at home, in their communities, and beyond. We are inviting school teams who are committed to taking on campaigns throughout the school year with PEYA in areas as diverse as waste management, stewardship and sustainable transportation.

Workshops at EcoBuzz are highly interactive and provide skill-building for running successful campaigns at school and in the community and for delivering educational/inspirational information related to themes of sustainability initiatives. Every year, we also feature a wide variety of interactive and dyanamic exhibits hosted by local environmental organizations.
