About the Event
The Girls Empowerment Movement (GEM) is excited to present our first online event of 2021, the Greenfull Project a FREE space for youth ages 13-25 of all identities and abilities, to learn more about food sustainability, security, and sovereignty on land currently known as the Peel Region, Ontario, Canada.
Join us for an interactive Zoom session to discuss how we can change our present and future through personal learning, action, and collective resistance. We will be joined by community guest facilitators Rav (@Shade of Miti), an urban farmer running a climate justice organization, and Justice for Indian Farmers TO, a grassroots organization of Sikh-Panjabi youth advocating for farmers and workers rights in India.
