Our wish for Beach Bucket Brigade is to involve our beach-going community members in keeping our beaches clean. The emphasis with be on encouraging children to participate in helping the environment and educating the public on the threats litter poses to wildlife.

The goal of the project is to raise awareness of water issues in our country and guide youth (our hope for the future) to find sustainable long-term solutions. This project will have a positive impact by empowering youth in leadership positions to incorporate traditional knowledge with modern science to bring a new and holistic perspective on the need to protect our natural environment and the interconnectedness between peoples, animals and the environment. This project ties into the theme of Indigenous Perspectives by incorporating Indigenous knowledge on water from elders and youth living in remote Northern Ontario communities, with the voices of non-Indigenous youth living in major cities and urban centers.
