The Town of The Blue Mountains is proud to be one of 100 communities worldwide to receive funding and technical assistance to support youth-driven climate action.

The Town has received $50,000 USD to distribute as microgrants worth between $1,500 and $6,000 CAD to fund youth-led climate initiatives. These projects can be implemented in any community within the traditional Territory of the Saugeen Ojibway Nation, which includes The Blue Mountains, Grey County, Southern Georgian Bay communities, Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation, Chippewas of Saugeen First Nation, Bruce County, and other communities within this area. Projects are encouraged to build youth engagement and collaboration across communities, building capacity and relationships that will help us address climate change with youth leadership. 

From mobilizing tree-planting or public education campaigns, to launching waste reduction initiatives, to participating in climate change mitigation planning or preparedness programs, efforts stemming from the new Youth Climate Action Fund will advance critical community goals such as meeting decarbonization commitments or reducing consumption-based emissions. All projects must align with and support The Blue Mountains and Grey County’s climate change goals and actions. Visit the TBM Future Story and Going Green In Grey for more information on these plans.
