Environment and Healthy Living Pillar

4-H Canada ensures our programs and activities create opportunities for youth to succeed
by letting them focus on exploration and self-discovery.

At the heart of the Environment & Healthy Living pillar is:

  • Learning to be stewards of the environment by developing sustainable solutions
  • Taking care of yourself and others
  • Learning positive ways to stay healthy and active
  • Making informed choices
  • Digging in and getting your hands dirty
  • Learning to listen to your heart
