We are a group of passionate youth, based in Alberta, working to promote youth engagement in the National Parks and environmental issues. Our mission is to ensure that youth are meaningfully engaged in parks management decisions that will impact them and generations to come.
The Canadian Rockies Youth Summit (CRYS) is an annual event designed, managed, and hosted by the CRYN Committee. CRYS provides experiential learning opportunities for youth around the topics of wildlife and nature conservation, climate change, tourism, outdoor recreation, meaningful reconciliation, parks management, and more! Attendees come from as far south as Crowsnest Pass and the Kainai Reserve, and as far north as Grande Cache, Alberta.
