Conscious Minds Camp 2015 Report

Conscious Minds Camp 2015 ran for 11 days in August with thirty-five youth, plus adults, elders, and children, from eleven different towns and cities across Southern Ontario. Conscious Minds Camp (CMC) is a collaborative leadership camp developed by and for youth and young adults to heal, learn and grow. In the face of climate change and extreme inequality, there is a pressing need to cultivate ecological and equitable practices for a liveable and healthy future. Yet the current education system is slow and resistant to teaching youth the skills and resources we need to be competent and active citizens of this future.
