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 from the Halton Climate Collective, as well as access to several resources, webinars, and an opportunity for face to face meetings with HCC staff.
