EcoBuzz is back for 2024!

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.
