Sarah Van de Vooren, Fanshawe’s Environmental Program Coordinator cleans, up a mountain of Tim Hortonscups that students were encouraged add to throughout the day on Tuesday, April 3. The pile Van de Voorenaccumulated represented 1,400 coffee cups. The Tim Hortons locations on campus distribute approximately7,400 cups of coffee a day. This pile only represented about 20 per cent of a day’s worth of coffee cups! Thegoal of the display was to communicate how impactful each individual’s actions are, as well as ways to divertthis waste from landfill using the designated hallway bins or the compost bins in the cafeterias. This waste canalso be reduced by using a reusable mug. The effort was part of Environmental Week on campus.

Is there a problem getting youthengaged in politics? Matt Ross, aCoordinator for the London YouthAdvisory Council (LYAC), thinks people make it harder than it has to be.“I think it’s done wrong,” hesaid. “Most youth voting cam- paigns (and) youth engagementcivic campaigns begin with the presupposition that youth don’tcare. It’s always, ‘How can youtrick someone into thinking vot-ing’s cool?’”Ross, along with Samantha Foxand Rob Freele, two other LYACCoordinators; Mark Goad, InternalAffairs Coordinator; and RichardSookraj and Saquib Mian, ExternalAffairs Coordinators, have beenhard at work over the last eightmonths, attending between 50 and100 meetings to put the YouthCouncil together. “This doesn’tinclude the dozens and dozens of Londoners and students who keptme moving forward with inspira-tion, new ideas and connections,”added Ross.The product of these months of hard work is the LYAC, a commit-tee of 13 people between the agesof 15 and 25 who are all passionateabout making London a better  place. They were voted in to theCouncil by the public in earlyMarch, and their term will lastfrom this September until Junenext year.“Youth Council, in a sense, isvery boring,” laughed Ross.“You’re making policy recommen-dations, you’re interfacing withcity staff on budget analysis, thatkind of thing, but (the membersare) legitimately doing somethingand they have the ability to influ-ence the decisions. I feel like whenyou actually just offer that, when itis the ability to create somethingand influence something, all these people rise to it and lots of people become interested in it.”Three LYAC members – Derek Stevens, Jessica Conlon andRebecca Croden – have direct tiesto Fanshawe.“I’ve always wanted to make adifference and try to help uplift andimprove everyone’s lives,”explained Stevens, a Londonnative who is currently in his sec-ond year of the joint Media,Information and Technoculture program between Fanshawe andWestern. “I feel like there’s a huge burden and negative energy andnegativity within our society andthat, at the root, we have a problemthat hasn’t been solved yet.”“I feel like I am part of thatchange,” he continued. “I saw(joining the LYAC) as an opportu-nity to get one step closer to shar-ing some good ideas to joining upwith other like-minded individualsand working together to helpimprove the state of things.” Hewas elected based on a platform of sustainability and environmental-ism, removing fluoride fromLondon’s drinking water and get-ting people to eat healthy and getactive.Stevens said now is the time totake action and make drasticchanges to avoid big problems inthe future. “Corporations are back-ing our governments, which arecontrolling the decisions wemake,” he explained, adding thathe sees an extreme divide betweencorporations and the working class.“We’re all human, you have tocare. How do we get them to care?is one of my questions … If wedon’t care for each other, then lit-erally we’re (in) an every-man-for-himself survivor (situation) andthat means, essentially, at most one person wins and likely everyoneloses.”Conlon, who is in her first year of Practical Nursing at Fanshaweand is a Student AdministrativeCouncil Representative for HealthSciences, is from Elmira, Ontario,and has a number of ideas abouthow to make London a better  place. “I’ve been involved with alot of grassroots movements, so Ireally understand how to do that.Being in Practical Nursing, Iunderstand what health promotionis about. It’s getting to the causeand stopping it from happening.It’s prevention – preventing it before it actually goes on.”She added that she wants to fixLondon’s problems at their source.“I’ve gone to a lot of City Hallmeetings, heard about the issuesand seen how they dealt withthings and the speed of their  process when dealing with issues.”She said she has seen firsthandhow the city council does notalways put citizens’ needs andwants first, citing current issueslike the debate to move City Hall,cutting money from social pro-grams and the proposed light showfor the World Figure SkatingChampionships slated to cost$450,000.Conlon had a number of ideasabout how to improve the city,such as creating community green-houses to teach people about localagriculture and healthy eating, andcreating safe drinking water for theLondon population. “Our water treatment facility is so old,” shesaid. “It needs to be refurbished, itneeds to be fixed, it’s not where itneeds to be … We need to get thechemicals out of our water.”Overall, through initiatives likethe North East Community Market(nemarket.ca) and L.O.O.K.(Locally Organized OrganicKnowledge) It’s A Party (lookit-saparty.ca), Conlon said she hopesto turn London into a thriving cul-tural hub. “That’s why I wanted toget into City Hall and make themsee that and make them as passion-ate about it as we are. If they were passionate about it, I think it would be happening already. For somereason, there’s too much apathy inthere. We want to try to get someempathetic people who really wantthings to happen in there.”Croden graduated fromFanshawe’s Recreation andLeisure Services program in April2011. She grew up in Muskoka,Ontario and has lived in Londonfor three years. “(I ran for LYAC) because I’m already an activist, soI figured I may as well put myactivism to the test and bring it toanother level,” she said. Croden’s platform was based on creatinggreen spaces in London throughrooftop gardening, greenhousesand other sustainability measures,as well as ensuring safe, fluoride-free drinking water.Croden and Conlon both men-tioned that, though their duties asYouth Council members don’tofficially begin until September,they have already started puttingtogether an action plan to creategreenhouses in London over thesummer. Conlon mentioned shehad been talking to business andeconomy students: “We can actual-ly start proving that this is going to benefit us and we can actually givethem logistics, numbers, scales,yield amounts per square footage.”She said she wants to focus on giv-ing people access to fresh, local produce. “We will be able to havemore than one growing season, andit will help our infrastructure great-ly. We could have social programs – have people who are in mentalhealth facilities or are homelesscome in and learn about gardeningand learn about science … The cityhas so much potential.”“Every single one of (the councilmembers on the LYAC) is honest-ly equally passionate (as Stevens,Conlon and Croden). It’s unbeliev-able,” Ross said proudly. “I think they’re going to be amazing: a)they’re all passionate, and b) it’s a broad political spectrum. They’llargue, but I think that’s a verygood thing, they’ll come to verycreative conclusions just by thattension. Despite the fact they havedifferent opinions … they’re allcollaborating and working onissues already. It’s fascinating tosee it happen.”For more information about theLondon Youth Advisory Council,check out lyac.ca.
