Attention students in grades 7-12th- 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 workshop series to learn about climate science and create change in your school and community through a Climate Action Plan.
Brought to you by Constitution Marsh Audubon Center and Sanctuary and Audubon New York, this interactive conference will allow students to explore climate change, its impacts, and community solutions. Participants will work in teams to design their own Climate 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.
The Youth Climate Summit is open to ALL school cohorts, afterschool, and other extracurricular groups. We also welcome individual students to attend.
Join us and discover how you can make a difference for the future.
Funding for this program is provided through a personal donation from Douglas Bloom.
