ABOUT THE STARFISH CANADA
Through research, scholarship, and workshops, The Starfish Canada is committed to encouraging creative thinking and a positive attitude towards making a difference. Each year, the Top 25 Environmentalists Under 25 showcases youth that are taking action and making a difference to Canada’s natural resources. With this program, we aim to provide a glimpse of what it means to be an environmentalist and break the stigmas and stereotypes associated with it.
