Young Canadians Roundtable on Health (YCRH) member Hannah Hill is back from Iqaluit where she represented The Sandbox Project at Global Vision’s first-ever Arctic Youth Ambassador Summit (ACYAS) from October 30 to November 2.
"It was a truly incredible four days," said Hannah.
As Canada completes its second term as Chair of the Arctic Council, youth from North and South met at the ACYAS to discuss innovative solutions to this region’s most pressing challenges and develop a consensus to present to Prime Minister Harper and the Hon. Leona Aglukkaq. As an ambassador for The Sandbox Project, Hannah had a real life opportunity to learn more about the North and the important issues facing her peers in northern communities.
