Youth Climate Action Showcase at Broad Meadow Brook

Making art at the Youth Climate Action Showcase

On Thursday, April 27 at 2:30 pm, youth climate teams will share their changemaker projects with other members of the Worcester community. This presentation is the third stage of the impactful Youth Climate Leadership Program (YCLP), following the summit held at Broad Meadow Brook Wildlife Sanctuary in January. Community members can attend in person at Broad Meadow Brook or watch on Zoom.

Earlier this year, 30 youth participants meet with Mass Audubon staff, local experts, and mentors during a Youth Climate Summit. Climate leaders kicked off the day by listening to panelists, including Mass Audubon’s Nia Keith, Vice President for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice, discuss climate science, climate justice, and climate solutions. The rest of the day consisted of round-table discussions, art and craft activities, and sustainability tours to help youth leadership groups learn about the power they have to create change on a community level.

With the support of their mentors and the resources and skills learned at the summit, the leadership groups a Climate Action plan that they could implement in their communities. Now, on April 27, these youth climate teams have the opportunity to reflect and share the products of their hard work.
