The Youth Climate Summit is a participant-driven educational conference for youth, designed to create an opportunity for learning, dialogue, and action on climate change. This premiere 2-day climate event for Western MA youth has served 100 youth from 6 local high schools at a time when youth leadership and empowerment is harnessing the world stage for change.

Student participants attend Summit workshops, tours, and interactive sessions designed to provide a balance of factual information, tools for confidence building, and project stories for inspiration and hope. As a culminating project, student teams develop an action plan for their high school, to be implemented in the coming year with support from Summit leaders.

CET will be in attendance giving two workshops to the students: Energy Efficiency and Food Waste.
