Youth Panel (August Monthly Membership Meeting)

08/18/2020 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Join us for the August Membership Meeting featuring young climate leaders. 

We're excited to welcome high school and college age climate leaders to discuss: the Youth4Climate virtual Summer Camp program, student participation in the camp and the youth leader's main takeaways, and youth's work on direct actions that can be taken to address climate issues. Attendees will also learn about the upcoming youth fellowship program that SanDiego350 is putting on in the fall. 

After the panel, we will take questions and feedback from attendees.
