The Arctic Energy Alliance was invited to set up a booth at the Tlicho Youth Conference in Whati from January 26-28. About 150 youth, ages 10 to 18, attended from all four Tlicho communities. Sonny Zoe, our Tlicho Regional Energy Project Coordinator, fielded plenty of questions on climate change, renewable energy systems, the AEA’s programs and the environment in general.

The theme of the conference was “empowering our future Tlicho leaders,” and it was great to see so many of the leaders of tomorrow interested in climate change and using energy responsibly.

Mahsi Cho!
