HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS FACTSHEET:

Youth Climate Lab conducted a study to assess if youth unemployment and climate action were considered in COVID-19 recovery responses. We had a hunch that they weren’t and we were right! Our study revealed youth employment in climate-related sectors – i.e. key sectors critical to a just and sustainable recovery out of the pandemic-caused economic recession – were barely mentioned in Canadian and global COVID-19 economic response policies released thus far. These findings highlight the potential for countries like Canada to be leaders in paving the way for a better, brighter future for all.
