Message from the Governor General on the Occasion of International Youth Day

Today is #InternationalYouthDay and this year’s theme is Transforming Food Systems: Youth Innovation for Human and Planetary Health.
Growing up, #GGSimon and her family lived off the land and hunted, fished and gathered food. Her message highlights the important role youth have in confronting climate change, which impacts everything from the air we breathe to the food we eat. Youth who are taking action for a better tomorrow and whose vision and perseverance are contributing to a healthy future can inspire all Canadians to join them in their efforts.
