In this second edition of our contest, 1.5 ALIVE wants to reach the young Canadian generation, to inspire climate action and to change our perception of the climate crisis, from a remote concern to a major part of Canadians’ discussions.
As the planet is getting warmer every year, Canada sees more effects of global warming: forest fires, droughts, ice storms…these have an impact on our communities on a physical and psychological level. However, the rate of implementing solutions is still too slow to mitigate the climate catastrophe. We want to speed this up by soliciting the Canadian population and starting a movement from the young generations.
Every Canadian from everywhere in the country from 12 to 21 years old can create a song or a video clip for this contest
