My name is Aiden Cyr and I am a 20 year old young Metis man from Ottawa, Ontario. I am incredibly excited for the opportunity to join the Climate Action Cohort. As a student of community, public affairs and policy studies at Concordia University in Montreal and a Students on Ice Alumni, the chance to tackle the worlds most pressing policy issue was something I could not pass up. Climate change affects us all and I want to blend the experiences of my academic life, personal and extracurricular life to this important issue. The CAC seems like exactly the program I need, one that brings a diverse group of youth together not only to talk and learn but also to act in the interest of creating a better world. The relationships, lessons learned and the inspiration I received from my first SOI experience are something I will always cherish and I cannot wait to work with the CAC to create new memories and realize long-term change.
