YRE Canada created an exhibit of this year’s 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place national competition winners as another way to engage the community. It is currently being displayed at different community events, such as festivals, in Toronto. The exhibition has so far been attended by 5,000 people.
The YRE Canada exhibit was on display at the Riverside Eats & Beats Festival in Toronto on 4 June, and included the participation of local restaurants, retailers, musicians and artists, and thousands of people in attendance. Canadian Young Reporters were able to speak with members of the public about the Young Reporters for the Environment programme and the Litter Less Campaign, and had a sign-up sheet for teachers and students who wanted to get involved.
