Kids Climate Summit 2021-- get the details:
Given the constraints imposed by the pandemic we are once again hosting our Summit online. This year it will take the form of two town halls, one for elementary school students and one for middle school students. At each town hall, there will be a group of experts who will be questioned by a selected panel of students, in front of an audience (kids and adults eager to preserve our planet). Both town halls will take place on April 13, 2021 - elementary students at 4 pm and middle school students at 6:30 pm. Experts for each panel will be announced in late February and audience registration will open in mid-March.
