“Unique and empowering experiences such as The Climate Action Show engage the imaginations of youth on the importance of protecting a healthy and prosperous environment now and in the future. This exhibit will present the very real climate challenges we are facing globally and will inspire young Canadians to take action in their communities,” said Guilbeault in a statement.
