IYEYS 2018 

The 2018 International Young Environmentalists Youth Summit was a great success! We had over 60 students from across the Northeast come to learn about how they could make a real impact in their communities, and a fantastic group of organizations who came to teach them. Youth learned about a variety of environmental problems and how groups are working to fix them, and got hands-on experience working with those solutions during our workshop periods. A number of fun environmental-themed games gave students the opportunity to develop their leadership and teamworking skills during their break periods. Students were also engaged in group-wide discussions focused on GMO’s and Renewable Energy, and had the chance to gain experience in public speaking by talking about those issues in front of their peers. Overall, a lot of great memories were made at IYEYS 2018, and we are already looking forward to planning next year’s youth summit!
