As a team, our strategy involves influencing climate policy at the county and national levels, as well as strengthening youth-led networks and organizations. With a focus on climate change, an economic focus on activities that can be undertaken by young people, we hope to build a strong movement of young climate enthusiasts that will help our country turn around the negative effects we are having on the environment. The three day boot camp on Climate Change is just a start!
