Nature Canada

Youth Journalism Initiative

As part of Nature Canada’s mission to discover, defend and restore nature, we’re committed to actions that advance Indigenous rights and reconciliation, as well as actions that advance racial and gender equity—and we began the Youth Journalism Initiative in September 2021, to help with these.

The Youth Journalism Initiative is a pilot project, funded by our Work to Grow program, with a goal of amplifying the voices and stories of Indigenous and racialized people. The five Journalism Associates we’ve hired are independently creating stories about BIPOC communities, Indigenous-led conservation, and related issues about nature, environmentalism and/or environmental racism.

The Journalism Associates are Anosha Khan, Ashley Stefureak, Carol Eugene Park, Matteo Cimellaro and Roveena Chand Jassal. Please keep an eye open for their stories—and bookmark this page to read updates about their work in 2021 and 2022.
