The Generation Green Project challenges Halton youth from Grade 7 to Grade 12 to take climate action, this year’s theme Active Transportation.
Students who join Generation Green will implement an initiative in their community that will reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. In order to make this process as easy as possible, students will have full support and access to resources to guide you through the process!

After Submitting your Project Proposal...
Transportation is one of the leading contributors of greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution in Halton. Given its role in the climate crisis – changing how we move around can have big impacts on our community.
We are looking at ways to reduce air pollution and how to build better community for future generations like you!
By designing our communities to prioritize cars – we have created places where it is difficult—even dangerous—for people to walk or bicycle. Creating a more balanced transportation system through supporting active transportation systems can simultaneously result in healthier places and healthier people.
