Youth Sustainability Summit Pierce County says YESS
After months of planning, we are excited to announce our first-ever youth summit!
The Youth Environmental and Sustainability Summit (YESS) will bring together groups of middle school and high school-aged youth from across Pierce County on April 24 at Tacoma Community College. Students will facilitate the workshops and presentations at this youth-led summit. Each group of youth will formulate a plan of action at the summit to address environmental and sustainability issues in their own school and community.
We believe young people have an important role and responsibility in addressing our pressing environmental issues. To release that potential, we educators and concerned individuals of all ages saw the need for an annual youth summit in Pierce County.
As a youth-led initiative, YESS is a space where the diverse youth network of Pierce County can learn, share and lead. Please forward this email to anyone you think would be interested in attending.
Students and their teachers can register to attend and apply to present at piercecountywa.gov/youthsummit.
