Hundreds of students gather in Woodbridge for EcoSummitApr 07, 2016
CTV Barrie covered the first ever EcoSummit in Woodbridge Tuesday. Hundreds of young environmental ambassadors gathered with a particular purpose in mind. Students representing 19 of more than 1,700 certified eco-schools in Ontario discussed environmental learning and green initiatives.
Ontario's Minister of the Environment and Climate Change Glen Murray was the guest speaker at Tuesday's event.
The day was filled with a variety of workshops, from spotting harmful micro-plastics to making art with nature.
"A single thing you're doing to impact the environment to change and make the world better is a step,” says grade 12 student Natalie Slade. “It might seem so small, but if everyone does something it's so large.”
Murray also announced another $344,000 for the program. That money will help pay for more learning resources and it'll also ensure that another EcoSummit can be held next year.
