About Rachel Parent

Rachel Parent is a relentless safe food environmental youth activist. Most known for her GMO Labeling advocacy, Rachel’s vision is actually much greater. She has a passionate and strong commitment to help motivate our youth, our communities, and policy makers to take simple actions every day for the protection of our ecosystems, the environment, and everyone’s future.

Since surprising the world with her courage and clarity as the 14-year-old powerhouse who successfully challenged celebrity host Kevin O’Leary on CBC Television in a debate about GMO labeling, Rachel Parent’s service as a youth activist now more broadly includes food and climate, social justice, animal rights, responsible consumption, and environmental protection

KIDS RIGHT TO KNOW & GMO Labeling

GMO Labeling Transparency Advocate

In 2012, Rachel founded Kids Right to Know, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to educating youth, about the connection between food production and climate change, with a focus and transparency in the labeling of Genetically Modified Food (GMO Labeling) in Canada and the USA.

Founded on the belief that we all have the “Right to Know” what’s in our food, regardless of age, Kids Right to Know seeks to inform, educate, empower, and motivate kids to stand up and make a difference.

Like youth environmental activist Greta Thunberg, since the age of 11, GMO labeling advocate Rachel Parent has been passionately advocating for a healthier & more sustainable world so that she and future generations to follow will have a planet to inherit & safely inhabit.

Gen-Earth & Monarch Butterfly Conservation Programs

Passionate about environmental challenges & the current social and political dimensions associated with them, Parent also spearheaded and is the Director of Gen-Earth Events. Gen-Earth is an environmental platform dedicated to education through film and activism, with the goal of motivating youth to learn about organic regenerative climate solutions to help feed the world, cool our planet, and heal the environment.

During the summer months, Rachel has been dedicating some of her time working on building a Monarch Butterfly Conservation Program.

GMO Labeling Advocate Rachel Parent's philosophy is reflected in one of her favourite quotes from the pioneering organic farmer Rupert Stephens: “Always leave the Earth better than you found it.”

"I am not a Science Experiment" ~Rachel Parent, GMO Labeling Advocate

Media & Public Speaking


Since the age of 11, Rachel has devoted her energies for environmental and food safety activism. She has given dozens of television, radio, magazine and online interviews, including the well-publicized debate about GMO labeling with celebrity host Kevin O’Leary on CBC Television. She was also featured in a television series about GMO labeling that was aired on Global News National, the result of which awarded Rachel a meeting with the Honourable Rona Ambrose, Canada’s Minister of Health.

Throughout her journey, Rachel has collaborated with numerous world leaders in the food safety and environmental movement, including scientist Dr. Gilles Eric Séralini, Dr. Vandana Shiva, Dr. Shiv Chopra, Dr. Bruce Lipton, author and filmmaker Jeffery Smith, author and attorney Steven Druker, Dr. David Suzuki, and Dr. Jane Goodall. Collectively, they are raising awareness about the risks of GMOs impacting everyone’s lives and the environment, and motivating millions to ask questions and take action.

In addition to everything else she has done, Rachel has given two TEDx talks presentations and countless speeches to audiences, at public demonstrations, and at conferences around the world.

Awards & Honours

Rachel has a list of honours and awards that is far too long to name here. She has been acknowledged as an Emerging Leader by The Clean50 Summit in Toronto, named one of Toronto’s Environmental Heroes by Now Magazine, nominated as Our Women of the Year in ELLE Magazine, recognized as one of the Seven Kids Saving the Planet Right Now by ELuxe Magazine, included in Canada’s Top 20 Under 20 Change Makers by Post City Magazine, featured in the Top 30 Thinkers Under 30 by Pacific Standard, included as one of Post City Toronto’s Most Inspiring Women, nominated as a finalist in Canada 150’s Lieutenant Governor’s Visionaries Prize. Rachel was also the recipient of the John Filion Award for Community Involvement, the Lieutenant Governor’s Community Volunteer Award, and the Rob Stewart Youth Eco Hero Award.

During the summer months, among other things, GMO Labeling Advocate Rachel Parent has been dedicating some of her time working on building a Monarch Butterfly Conservation Program.
