MCPS Hosting Youth Climate Summit on April 22
MCPS will host the 2nd Annual Youth Climate Summit from 8:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 22. The event will take place at Tilden Middle School, which achieved a LEED Silver Certification in 2021 from the U.S. Green Building Council.
This student-led event is designed to educate MCPS high school students about climate change and equip them with the tools to create climate action projects to bring back to their communities. During the summit, students will talk with environmental mentors, collaborate with peer leaders and grow as environmental activists.
Students will have the option of attending the summit as mentors or participants. All students will receive Student Service Learning (SSL) hours, environmentally friendly food options and access to environmental justice resources. Transportation will be provided on MCPS electric buses.
