NYC Youth for Sustainable Development

Friday, Apr 20, 2012

Each year, the Global Kids Annual Youth Conference brings together approximately 500 young people, primarily from New York City public high schools, and 100 educators for a youth-led event that addresses a youth-selected international issue. This year’s conference is all about climate change and climate justice, with a special focus on what young people can do to take action to support the Rio+20 Earth Summit. The conference workshops and speakers will also address other key international, national and local issues on climate change, including campaigns being led by GK leaders in the Human Rights Activist Project. These campaigns include: organizing leaders and young people to take a pledge for the Earth in support of Rio+20; working to ban hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, in NY State; and working to improve air quality and reduce carbon emissions in Western Queens through several strategies.

Date: Friday, April 20, 9am – 5pm

Location: Baruch College, 55 Lexington Avenue (between 24th & 25th Streets)
