The Richmond Earth Day Youth Summit is going to be hosted at Hugh Boyd Secondary School on April 18, 2015 from 8:30am to 12:30pm.
REaDY Summit is a fun, free, and inspiring youth led environmental conference. We aim to promote environmental sustainability awareness for all ages in the local community and beyond.
The 2015 Richmond Earth Day Youth (REaDY) Summit is going to be a very unique event, led and organized by Richmond students.
REaDY Summit is a youth-led conference promoting environmental awareness and action by presenting the unique opportunity for our participants to be in close contact with sustainability experts discussing current challenges. Through motivational speakers and engaging workshops the REaDY Summit hopes to foster a new generation of environmental and sustainability leaders.
This event itself is the culmination of the efforts of a yearlong mentoring program, where Green Ambassadors, supported and mentored by City of Richmond and School District #38 staff, learn valuable leadership, event planning, community convening, and technical skills. These same keen youth are also connected with many community activities throughout the year including waste diversion, composting, tap water promotion, and other environmental stewardships programs.
And we hope to bring to you an enjoyable and memorable REaDY Summit 2015!
Stay tuned for more information.
