Attention New York high school students grades 9-12, you're invited to a unique opportunity to learn about climate change and how to advocate for your future. Join Audubon for a free virtual Youth Climate Summit to learn about climate science, engage with climate professionals, and empower you to create and implement a climate action plan for your community.
Brought to you by Constitution Marsh Audubon Center and Sanctuary and Audubon New York’s For the Birds program, this interactive, high-energy conference will allow high school students to explore climate change, its impacts, and community solutions. Participants will work in teams to design their own action plans to put to work in their schools and communities. Through science exploration, action planning, and interactive workshops, students will gain a greater understanding of climate change and how to make a difference while engaging in a peer-to-peer education environment.
Join us and discover how you can make a difference for the future.

Become a Part of the Youth Advisory Council - Want to take your passion for the environment to the next level? We are looking for youth to participate in our Youth Advisory Council (YAC). This working committee is made up of young leaders who are committed to environmental issues centered around climate change and conservation action in their communities. YAC participants will advise Audubon staff in their efforts to engage students in the Youth Climate Summit, serving as ambassadors to their communities and leaders at the Summit. Members are required to participate in regular (likely bi-monthly) meetings that could continue through the summer months.
