You might recall this round's theme was going to be "Access," but we are moving that to later in the year, to guarantee that we have a wheelchair accessible venue.
So! I am very excited to be partnering with Chicago Wilderness for this round's theme: GREEN EDUCATION. Topics will be around engaging young people in environmental leadership, up to and including choosing careers in conservation and sustainability. We are particularly interested in ideas for fostering a more racially and ethnically diverse future of conservation.
Our speakers are TBA and will represent a variety of youth conservation education entities. Got a great idea or experience, yourself, on this theme? Please consider sharing it on February 24! Submit your idea here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
