Recognizing the 2021 Earth Day theme to “Restore Our Earth”, hear from student voices, the New York City Department of Education, and TC’s Center for Sustainable Futures on how to engage youth as agents of restoration and change on the global climate stage. Speakers will examine questions of what motivates youth to mobilize, provide diverse perspectives on addressing and supporting youth climate activism, and offer tools to encourage effective climate change activism on both a local and national level.
