Youth Climate Summit - Join Us!

2021 Youth Climate Summit logo

Calling all Philadelphia-area students in grades 8-12! 

I’m thinking about how I can rise to the 2021 Earth Day theme to “Restore the Earth”—and I want YOU to join me! 

You’ve heard about climate change, now learn what you can actually DO about it.  

Join me at The Franklin Institute’s first-ever Youth Climate Summit and learn about the science of climate change, its impacts, and the solutions you can access right now in your school.  

As a Summit attendee, you and your teammates will: 

 - Attend virtual educational workshops led by scientists, environmental justice activists, youth advocates, and more that will showcase climate solutions and inspire action; 
 - Create an action plan specifically for your school and design a strategy to get it done; and, 
 - Contribute to tackling climate change in your community!  

We are now accepting applications to attend through March 19th. To learn more and apply with your team today visit our event page or email  

I can’t wait to see you there!
