Students from across the North will be coming together on March 11 and 12 to discuss environmental stewardship.
The inaugural North Saskatchewan Eco-Conference is the brainchild of Melissa Cromarty from the Churchill Community High School and Theresa Huntley from the La Loche Dene High School.
“I liked the idea of teaching students practical hands on approaches, as well as a social activist kind of mentality,” Huntley said. “The idea that they can make a change and take charge and work together to create something positive in their own communities.”
She billed the gathering as a chance to empower students while engaging in the environment, which is important because of the volume of natural resources coming from the northern regions of Saskatchewan.
