Arizona Youth Climate Summit

Join us for the first Arizona Youth Climate Summit, led by Arizona Youth Climate Strike and GreenLight Solutions, for a day of workshops empowering students and providing them with new skills to address the climate crisis in their own communities.

The climate crisis is an emergency, and fighting climate breakdown will need multi-generational action to create a just and sustainable world that works for all of us.

Learn how to take action with a variety of sessions designed to engage youth with different forms of activism, such as lobbying, public speaking, writing, and civic engagement.

These sessions will be followed by a volunteer fair with several different environmental groups.

Environmental historian and ASU Sustainability Scientist Paul Hirt will give an opening speech on the history of environmental activism in the US, placing the youth climate movement into its historical context.

Refreshments and lunch will be provided.

Although we urge you to take the light rail or bike to the event, parking is available around the ASU Tempe campus.

This event has reached capacity.

This event is for middle school, high school and university students.
