The Reverse Town Hall

The Millennial Town Hall (MTH) was established by the Youth of Today Society; Kwanlin Dun First Nation and Ta’an Kwach’an Council, in 2018. The mission was and is to promote peer-to-peer discussions on issues that impact youth, on a daily basis, and to encourage an honest and meaningful conversation with Yukon politicians and decision makers. The Town Hall is an all inclusive event open to ALL Yukon millennials between the ages of 15-30.  

Meet The Grand Chief.

As the face of the Council of Yukon First Nations, Peter Johnston strives to balance the serious side of his work with lighter moments. “We have to take the time to celebrate not only our achievements but also celebrate our time together as First Nation people,” says CYFN’s Grand Chief. Johnston turns his eye to the next generation. In a world with more open lines of communication, First Nation youth must rise up and take a leadership role in Canada’s future, he says. And for any youth who want to chat with him, Johnston is available to provide mentorship. Johnston turns his eye to the next generation.

Gainfully employed citizens commute to and from their jobs, breathing in the crisp air and enjoying it while it lasts, before eventually being safely ensconced within a comfortably-heated building, one they know will always be there to shelter them from the environment, from harm.
