Participants getting close look at Indigenous-led projects

Young people from all over the country are in Whitehorse this week to take part in an Indigenous clean energy conference.

The youth participants, aged 18 to 30, are visiting the Yukon through a program called Generation Power, which offers career training for young people wanting to get involved in the clean energy field.
