This year we will explore the global link between the environment and social justice, offering workshops, resources, an action fair and networking opportunities for high school students. We’re excited to kick off the day with youth led workshops sharing their climate change action projects. In the afternoon, we will explore school garden education, the status of climate refugees, the future of the world’s forests. In addition, we will look at the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, environmental stewardship, community organizing and much more!
