The Peel Environmental Youth Alliance (PEYA) is a network of action-oriented students in Peel concerned about environmental issues and determined to make positive change!
Promoting Youth Engagement
PEYA is a youth-initiated organization, guided by a student Executive Committee and supported by Ecosource. Based on our strong student expertise, and adult support from Ecosource, PEYA assists other students and teachers looking to create sustained environmental change in their schools, and helps students build their capacity to affect positive environmental change in their communities.
PEYA unites students across Peel working to improve the environment in their schools and neighbourhoods through monthly networking meetings and an online community. We provide a forum for students to learn from one another and form relationships with local environmental organizations.
In the community, PEYA is a catalyst for youth participation in environmental policy-making and is committed to exploring best practices for youth-adult partnerships. PEYA organizes fun and effective educational events, engaging students across the Region of Peel, including leadership and skill-building workshops, and our popular annual EcoBuzz Conference.
