Past Events

CARE Summit December 2022

The CARE Summit December 2022 included more than 160 students from grades 7-12 who created 42 climate-action projects. More than 300 people attended the event.

The Summit featured inspirational stories from youth activist and entrepreneur Olive Butler (founder of Conspiracy Cosmetics) and the City of Vernon’s climate action implementation coordinator Brendan Riome, who shared information about diverse job opportunities in the climate-action field.

Nine judges from the public, private, and non-profit sectors selected winning projects based on a variety of social, environmental, and economic factors, potential community impacts, mentor interactions, and the teams’ display and presentation skills.

CARE also introduced awards judged and presented by Students Without Borders Academy, including Most Inspiring Project, Most Innovative Display, Biggest Hurdle Overcome, and Best Dressed Team.


The Fresh Outlook Foundation’s passion is inspiring community conversations for sustainable change, the key word being “conversations.”


To that end, we have hosted events such as the Climate Action Ripple Effect Summits (CARE), HEADS UP! Community Mental Health Summits, the Building SustainABLE Communities (BSC) conference, CommUnity Innovation Lab, Fresh Dialogues, Eco-Blast Kids’ Camp and Concert, REEL CHANGE SustainAbility Film Fest, Breakfast of Champions, Women 4 SustainABILITY, and Talking ‘DIRTy’ x10,000, to engage people from all sectors, age groups, cultures, and genders in dialogue that makes their communities healthier, happier, and more prosperous.


While magical and memorable, event outcomes have also been proven to accelerate the move from vision to action for complete communities. For example, evaluation results from the 2017 BSC conference showed that what delegates learned and who they met measurably changed their lives at home, work, and play.
