The Adirondack Youth Climate Summit will be held on November 8th & 9th, 2023 at The Wild Center.
Over 100 high school students from various schools and community groups across Northern New York State will be in attendance! We combine informative plenary sessions and workshops in a fun atmosphere for a powerful 2-day educational experience. At the Summit, students will develop a climate action plan that they can use to implement climate solutions in their own community. Young people will leave ready to accelerate change in their lives, schools and communities.
