Submitted by Sasha from Boston Latin School
Students--Come to A Free Youth Summit Saturday, May 19th 2007 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Building 34 from 8:30 to 5:00!
The Youth Summit organized by kids at Boston Latin School is aimed at informing ourselves about global warming, creating opportunities to foster student activism, and building a coalition of youth who will continue to work together in the fight against global warming. It will be an exciting day. We will start with a keynote speaker (Kerry Emanuel), and then break into smaller groups for morning content sessions ranging from how to assess various sources of energy, current legislation aimed at impacting global warming, the science of global warming, and issues related to environmental justice. Checkout the specific schedule and register online at http://www.blsyouthcan.org
Breakfast and lunch are included free! The Underground Railway Theater will perform segments of their “Eco Cabaret” after lunch! Afternoon sessions will involve the creation of multimedia products. All who register will be entered into a free raffle for great prizes, such as iPods, gift certificates, etc. Space is limited to 325 participants, and there is a limited amount of space in each breakout session as well, so be sure to sign up soon!
