15th Annual Youth Summit on Climate and Sustainability
Boston Latin School’s Youth Climate Action Network (YouthCAN) is planning our 15th Annual Youth Summit on Climate and Sustainability around this year’s Earth Day. It will take place virtually on Saturday, April 17th, from 12:45 pm – 3:00 pm.
Our theme for this Summit is Don’t Wait, Advocate! We’ll be highlighting the intersectionality of the climate crisis, and the intersectionality of the solutions we need to address it. Many youth are already aware and passionate about the effects of climate change, but we often struggle to find effective ways to join the climate justice fight. This Summit aims to give them specific, concrete actions that they can take, on-call and in a supportive environment, to combat the environmental issues plaguing their communities.
The Summit will be a fun couple of hours of workshops, performers, and hearing from Keynote Speaker, Boston City Councilor Michelle Wu! We usually have about 200 student attendees from over 50 area schools, and even though it might be different in a virtual setting, it’s a fantastic opportunity for youth to network, connect, and make their voices heard. Workshop facilitators include Sunrise Boston, Our Climate, the MA Youth Climate Coalition, our own school culture clubs, and more!
