Donor Story: Investing in our youth

My name is Andrew Davidson, I’m an Investment Advisor based in Vancouver. 

To me, meaningful investment includes investing in combating the climate crisis. There is no clearer return than a clean and healthy world.

As with tackling many pressing issues, starting with education can be transformative. I encourage you to invest in Be the Change Earth Alliance because there really is no downside to investing in climate action and students.  

I met Maureen Jack-LaCroix through family connections. We went for coffee, and once I heard about Be the Change Earth Alliance from her, I knew it was a worthwhile cause. I think there would probably be fewer people who denied the science and the effects of climate change if our education system had been set up to tackle these topics a lot sooner. 

With your support Be the Change can bring its Youth for Climate Action program to hundreds more of BC’s teachers, empowering thousands of youth with the transformative education they need. 

Be the Change programs help youth develop the critical thinking and collaborative skills they need to become empowered citizens, innovative and resilient to meet the great changes that are ahead of us.

Best wishes,
