Join us for the 2nd Annual Next in Nature Youth Conservation Summit, created by and for people ages 13-18. This year’s summit features keynotes from naturalist and researcher Corina Newsome and entomologists/educators The Bug Chicks, as well as youth-led sessions on nature and conservation. Connect through discussions, brainstorming, and games, and share conservation messages through video screenings and a digital art gallery. Learn about green career opportunities and what you can do to make a difference right now.
The Next in Nature summit will take place entirely online and is free for all. You can lead or participate in a session, or just attend and watch. Pre-registration is required for all attendees and participants.
What do we mean by “conservation”? Well, conservation can be a lot of things. It could be engaging in sustainable actions at home, like recycling or composting, or cleaning up a natural area in your neighborhood like a river or field. It could be scientific research on plants and animals, teaching kids about the environment, managing a wildlife area, protecting native bees, planting trees, or fighting for clean air or water for all. Basically, conservation is any action that humans take to nurture and protect our amazing planet.
