A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome that outlines how credit criteria are met and any positive measurable outcomes associated with the innovation:
The Dais is a public policy and leadership institute at Toronto Metropolitan University that connects people to the ideas and power we need to build a more inclusive, innovative, and prosperous Canada. The DAIS offers a Generation CLimate program tailored to new change-makers on climate science, policy, communications and action. Generation Climate is a youth-driven initiative focused on building factual awareness about, and solutions to, climate change. They are working with youth across the country in rural and suburban areas to combat climate change misinformation in their communities and online through thousands of face-to-face conversations, online trainings, and establishing and supporting local climate action projects.

In the last two years, we have had nearly 270,000 conversations about climate change with young people across the country, and thousands have committed to taking climate action. Over 1,000 young people have been trained in climate science, policy and action, and dozens are supporting climate action in their community or starting their own climate projects.
