YEA Summit - April 2023
Homer and David attended the Youth for Environmental Action; Empowering Teens for Climate Change Summit on Monday April 17th, 2023. Over 100 students were present from a number of Santa Cruz County High Schools. What impressed us the most was the summit was planned and led by the students. Activities included introductions, students speaking about personal climate change injustice experiences, a guest panel discussion from climate scientists focusing on what individuals can do, and a session where students engaged with the guest organizations. We had a wonderful time talking with students about the mission and goals of COI. All the students were interested in attending our upcoming coastal cleanup on May 27.
