TEENS TAKING ACTION FOR CLIMATE CHANGE
Seattle Youth Climate Action Network (CAN) empowers teens to address climate change in their communities through education, leadership, and action.
Seattle Youth Climate Action Network was launched in January 2015 with initial funding from The Ocean Project, and represents a new partnership between teen programs at Woodland Park Zoo, Seattle Aquarium and Pacific Science Center. In 2015, more than 150 teens participated in monthly events, trainings, action campaigns, and a Youth Climate Action Summit.
- 100+ youth and community contributors attended the first Seattle Youth Climate Action Summit
- 50+ teens participated in the summer sustainable transportation campaign
- Support from Seattle City Light, King County Metro, Climate Solutions, Forterra and other local groups
- Three teen ambassadors presented at the Adirondack Youth Climate Summit in November
- Featured project on Climate.gov
In 2016, Seattle Youth CAN will:
- Host monthly climate events
- Support teen groups in launching climate action campaigns
- Connect teens with local climate experts and leaders
- Host the Seattle Youth Climate Action Summit
This year, we plan to grow the network by creating opportunities for all interested teens in the Seattle area to get involved, and by encouraging other youth programs to join Seattle Youth CAN
