The first annual Marin Youth Climate Change Summit has been  organized with the help of the Marin County Office of Education, faculty and members from high schools, members from Sleepy Hollow Presbyterian Church and staff from the Marin County Board of Supervisors, plus motivated individuals who have devoted their time.  Altogether they established student-led committees on Advocacy,   Art, Video, The Environment. The Marin Youth Climate Change Summit will serve as a place where students can learn the tools and science to help spur action in their communities. We hope to inspire and give weight to the idea that youth can create real change, not in the future, but now.

Then attend one of the several student-led break-outs.  "Art and The Environment,"  "Fashion and the Environment," "Technology and the Environment," to name a few.

--  I hope to spread awareness about climate change throughout our community and get more people involved in taking action against the damage we are causing to our planet.  Many people don't even realize that they are causing negative impacts on the environment.  If we can spread the work, then people will be willing to do something to change what we are doing.
