SUMMIT UPDATES

The 2022 Bronx Youth Climate Summit has been scheduled for SUNDAY MAY 15th, 2022! Check out our keynote page and our workshop page to learn about what has been offered in previous years. Registration will be open soon to students and educators in the Bronx. Please note - this year's summit will be hosted in-person at the Ethical Culture Fieldston School's Riverdale campus. 

Our Mission

The mission of the first-ever Bronx Youth Climate Summit and the first virtual climate summit has been 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. This year, we are excited to finally be hosting our first in-person summit to focus on more local impact in the Bronx. The summit is a wonderful opportunity for Bronx students to find their place in the climate movement and become empowered to take action within their own communities.
