EcoBuzz Conference

EcoBuzz is back in-person for 2023!
This year's theme we are exploring
Interconnectedness: You and the Environment

What is EcoBuzz?

The EcoBuzz Conference provides an interactive and hands-on venue for hundreds of Peel students in Grades 6 through 12 and teachers to explore environmental issues concerning youth and inspire climate action. The full day event focuses on engaging youth and teachers in climate education and action through interactive workshops led by community partners and local champions. The conference aims to provide students and educators with resources, education, and inspiration to become stewards of their communities. Participants will have the chance to hear from a local youth as the keynote speaker, meet professionals from the environmental sector, and get inspired to implement meaningful environmental initiatives at school and beyond!
