International Young Environmentalists Youth Summit
Held annually, the International Young Environmentalists Youth Summit (IYEYS) is a youth-imagined, youth-driven, and youth-executed event aimed at providing young environmentalists the tools they need to take their campaigns to the next level. From youth who have started global organizations, to youth who are leading school-based environmental projects, IYEYS is for everyone. We also welcome adults who are looking to learn more about how to implement youth leadership and engagement strategies into their classrooms, organizations, or even businesses. Starting in 2019, IYEYS has been renamed the Empowered Young Environmentalists Summit, or EYES. As Greening Forward grows, changes like this allow us to become more accessible to a greater community.
