The 2021 virtual Bronx Youth Climate Summit has been scheduled for SATURDAY MAY 15th, 2021! More information regarding registration and workshops coming soon.
The mission of the first-ever Bronx Youth Climate Summit and the first virtual climate summit is to virtually bring together high school students and educators to learn about environmental justice and activism in the Bronx. We have invited scientists, conservationists and youth activists to lead virtual workshops showcasing the many different ways that people have fought climate change and its effects. The end goal of the summit is for each school group to create a climate action plan to bring back to their community. We hope to show participants that any talent, skill or profession can be used to address climate change and give them the tools to affect change in their communities.
