2020 Top 25 Environmentalists Under 25

2020’s Top 25 Environmentalists Under 25 represent some of the incredible young people making deep impacts across the country. Despite the impacts of COVID-19, each of our Top 25 Environmentalists Under 25 shows all of us how no matter the circumstances, we can mobilize and create a just recovery that is equitable for both people and the planet.

You’ll find each winner and their corresponding bio below. Over the next few months, we’ll have a bounty of opportunities for them to connect with each other and with our community, including mentorship, storytelling events, connections to elected officials, and more.

Each winner was asked to recognize the traditional territory they reside on. Their answers are with their bios, and we want to honour and name the traditional territories that comprise Turtle Island and thank Indigenous peoples for their continued stewardship of their land. Territory acknowledgements are one of many steps to take to ensure we work meaningfully towards reconciliation effort with all Indigenous, First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples.
