The Little Leaders Summer Climate Convention is for young leaders who are interested in getting involved in direct climate action.

About this event

The Little Leaders Summer Climate Convention (August 20th and 21st) is for young leaders aged 10 to 12 who are interested in getting involved in direct climate action. The main mission of this initiative is to provide a platform to inspire and empower each other to lead the next steps in the fight against the climate crisis. We have always been and always will be agents of change and a source of inspiration as we lead the way in a new wave of intersectional action.

The weekend will be completely youth-led and centered around a series of interactive workshops on topics including intersectionality and environmental justice, creative climate action, climate change solutions both big and small, as well as climate science and leadership training.

On Saturday August 20th we will meet at the Hitchcock Center in Amherst and Sunday August 21st we will meet at the Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary of Easthampton. Both days camp will run from 9:00 am to 2:30 pm. Participants should bring their own lunch and snack.

This program is organized and run by Youth Climate Action Now in partnership with The Hitchcock Center, Mass Audubon’s Youth Climate Leadership Program, and Spring Forward.

We want this program to be as inclusive and accessible as possible and therefore there is no required registration fee. However, donations of any size are greatly appreciated. You can donate to the Hitchcock Center through this registration link, to Mass Audubon, and you can support youth-led climate activism at http://climateactionnowma.org.

Note: There is no online waiver for this program but we will distribute liability waivers on Saturday morning. Also, this is a youth-led event but we will have at least two adults on site in case of emergencies. For other questions or concerns please contact Ollie Perrault at youthclimateactionnow@gmail.com.
