Girls Climate Summit 2017
Sat, April 22, 2017, 9:00 AM – 3:30 PM EDT
The Girls Climate Summit strengthens the knowledge and leadership skills of young women who are passionate about the environment. Over the course of the summit, middle and high school level girls from the Philadelphia region come together to talk about climate change issues and to cultivate leadership skills that will enable them to become environmental change makers in their own communities. The conference is split up into a series of keynote speakers, interactive workshops led by local and national organizations, engaging outdoor activities, and leadership building exercises.
The specific aims are as follows:
1) Educate girls about urgent climate change issues
2) Promote girls’ involvement, voice, and participation in climate issues that are impacting ourworld today so they become leaders and advocates in the environment movement
3) Build a network of climate change advocates
4) Identify concrete steps girls can take in their neighborhoods and communities to counteract
climate change — we build ideas that lead to climate change action.
