Youth Climate Action Summit
April 4 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm| Free
While our world continues to change at an unprecedented rate, legislators have all but halted action on climate change, paving the way for the larger-than-life youth climate activists that have emerged in the last decade. From 16-year-old Time Person of the Year Greta Thunberg who has inspired Fridays for Future movements across the world to Indigenous youth water protectors at Standing Rock to the increasingly influential Sunrise Movement – it has become apparent that those who are speaking the loudest on the frontlines of this fight are those with the most at stake – our youth.
Our first annual Youth Climate Action Summit for middle and high school aged students and teachers will serve as a platform for young climate activists to come together to discuss key environmental issues, learn from local leaders in the field, and showcase innovative solutions. The day will include a keynote speech followed by engaging break out sessions and talks. Registration is required and check-in begins at 8:30 am.
