Fracking & Our Future
Jan 22 @ 4:00 pm – 5:15 pm

The Youth v. Oil campaign is hosting a webinar centered around educating the issue of oil drilling in California! We will discuss climate justice and the environmental impacts that are caused by fracking. 

Come to hear from multiple panelists speak about their personal experiences with living near fracking sites, how they are aiding the movement and mobilizing people to stand up against the fossil fuel industry.

This event is organized entirely by youth climate activists from San Diego! Youth v. Oil is currently organizing a campaign with the purpose of urging Governor Newsom to stop issuing new fracking permits and to create a solid plan to phase out oil drilling in California. At our webinar, we will discuss our campaign and how you can support youth climate leaders! This event is open to anyone (adults and youth). Please join our webinar to learn more about oil drilling, hear from influential community organizers, and help San Diego youth protect their future!
