The UnderstoryEdit

The Understory is that part of the forest growing beneath or in the shade of the canopy. The Understory is also the bi-lingual e-newsletter of the Young Greens of Canada published approximately once per month. Youth that are growing in the Party and preparing to burst forth and lead the GPC in making Canada a sustainable society. The Understory publishes all that stuff going on in the shade—your opinions on Green politics, your artwork, your photos, and news from campus Greens across the country.

The Understory aims to provide an outlet for youth to become more involved in politics, a forum for youth to express ideas and facilitate green activism, and a means of networking with youth involved with the Greens at high schools, colleges, and universities.[3]
