The Council of Yukon First Nations, Assembly of First Nations Yukon Region and Youth Climate Lab are excited to be co-creating and launching the first Yukon First Nations Climate Action Fellowship. This 20-month fellowship is intended to build on the Youth Vision and Principles developed and shared during the Yukon First Nations Climate Action Gathering in February 2020. Leadership upheld this Youth vision and direction as the path to follow in creation of a Yukon First Nation Climate Action Plan. As part of that path, we are now searching for up to twelve people aged 18-30, from across the Yukon and from our neighbouring transboundary Nations in BC or NWT (within the COVID-19 bubble) to join us in decolonizing climate policy in the North. Fellows will work alongside Yukon First Nations to create a Yukon First Nations Climate Vision and Action Plan for release in Spring 2022. The Fellowship will also build on Fellows' skills and provide support to commence or further their own projects.
We value our young people's time and knowledge - Fellows will be provided a $5,000 stipend over the course of the Fellowship.

I heard this announced on the Yukon CBC last week and it sounds very exciting!
