One Planet: Sustainable North Bay Youth Summit
4:40 - 5:00 PM
On April 2nd, 2016, a group of 70 people- grades 6-12 student-teacher teams from 11 schools, Sonoma State University students, staff and faculty, and 10 environmentally-focused community organizations- came together to showcase school projects and educational initiatives related to sustainability. The purpose of this year's Youth Summit was to introduce the One Planet Living framework to students and teachers, as an entry point for adding depth to school projects inside and outside the classroom. Throughout the day, participants assessed themselves and their school communities in alignment with One Planet Living, strengthening projects and generating new ideas. Two schools in attendance will be given a $500 seed grant to take their One Planet Living projects and school communities to the next level in the 2016-2017 school year.
