Generation Green 2021-2022
What is Generation Green?
Designed for youth by youth, where students are given the tools, resources, and inspiration to actively empower them to reduce Halton’s carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions
With the support of the Halton Climate Collective, each student will complete a project that reduces their community’s greenhouse gas emissions. The program launches with a special event where students are introduced to their community projects, and then concludes at the Wrap-Up Event, where students are given the opportunity to share their project and see what their peers accomplished.
What does it mean to be a part of Generation Green?
Join Generation Green as a youth stakeholder and help us plan the conference, project and more.
Students who join Generation Green will be asked to implement an initiative in their community that will reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. Students who successfully reduce their community’s greenhouse gas emissions will receive volunteer hours and a Certificate of Completion, and will be eligible to win one of our amazing prizes. As an added bonus, students are encouraged to align their initiatives with a school or science fair project.
These projects will also look great on a resume or college/university application.

This year’s theme is Active Transportation.
Why should we focus on Active Transportation?
Transportation is one of the leading contributors of greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution in Halton and around the world. Given its role in the climate crisis – changing how we move around can have big impacts on our community.
Reducing the burning of fossil fuels for transport will help reduce the rate of climate change and the severity of the impact of climate change, but what does that mean for us?
Let’s drive climate action, not cars! Show our community why we’re Generation Green!
Youth Stakeholders drive Generation Green and help build the direction of the project in order to reduce GHG and build low-carbon, climate-resilient community.
Take a simple action you do every day and see if you can make small changes or big changes to reduce your carbon impact. Would you eat less meat, bike more, or adjust your thermostat to conserve energy in your home? These are the types of actions students take when completing their projects.
