Broward Youth Climate Summit

  • Past Summits

    2019 - BCPS middle and high school students attended the inaugural Broward Youth Climate Summit on January 25th, 2019 at the Global Events Center in Fort Lauderdale.  The Youth Climate Summit provided a platform for students to advocate for policy change and gives students a voice for promoting environmental sustainability.  Students who attended the Summit shared their climate action plans or projects and networked with each other, elected officials and scientists working on sustainability issues.

    The event was held in collaboration with the Broward County Environmental Planning and Community Resilience Division.
