Steve Lee

Executive Director, 3% Project

Through 5 national tours during which he presented at 600 high schools, Steve and FES sought to mobilize 3% of the Canadian population – 1,000,000 Canadian youth – for climate action. He has raised over a million dollars for the 3% Project, hosted 32 Sustainable Development Goals Youth Trainings across Canada and trained 5,900+ students from 77 universities and colleges. FES’s full-time Regional Mentors across Canada provide 30 hours of mentorship for every school to empower the students to take climate action in their local communities today. In essence, 3% Project inspires and empowers the final generation who can solve climate change.
