Rural youth reveal research video

Youth living in Ashcroft and Cache Creek are holding an event to launch their video advocating for more green spaces. They will discuss the results of a research project that they have participated in for the past year with TRU’s School of Nursing, led by Dr. Bonnie Fournier. The youth participants are raising awareness of the importance of green spaces for youth to feel included and safe in their community. The goal for the youth who participate in the study is to improve their communities.

The event takes place at the Ashcroft HUB (711 Hill St. Aschcroft), in the Social Centre. Refreshments will be served and there will be a presentation along with time to view the photos taken by youth.
