Event description
Giving youth the tools they need to lead our world into a more sustainable future.

About this event

MN Renewable Now will be hosting a leadership training for High School Juniors and Seniors May 28-29th, 2020. This will be a two day training & networking conference where youth will attend breakout sessions, panel discussions, lectures and hands-on workshops to; in order to understand the urgency to implement renewable energy into our energy grid, how renewable energy works, ways they can participate in renewable energy now, and how they can advocate for renewable energy with their state legislatures, and city and county elected officials.

High School Juniors and Seniors of today are the university scholars, political leaders and voters of tomorrow. Giving them the tools they need to lead now, will give them the confidence and credibility to lead our community into a more sustainable future.

In addition to understanding what renewable energy is and how it works, they will also need to understand how government works and how to navigate it successfully in order to implement change. Sitting down with their elected representatives, breaking bead, getting to know them, and having an opportunity to express their hopes, dreams, needs and passions, will make it seem less intimidating when presented with this opportunity in the future. This simplifies the process and helps them to understand that government is more accessible than they realize.

We will offering up to 10 scholarships for youth to attend for youth who write an essay to explain why they would like this opportunity in order to be accepted. Space is limited where we can only register 30 youth.

In order to make this conference accessible to everyone, especially communities of color and youth who live in neighborhoods with a low AMI (Area Median Income), we will host the Renewable Now Leadership Conference at the Northside Resident Redevelopment Council, just 3 blocks away from North High School.

MN Renewable Now will be partnering with with Kid Wind, University of Minnesota’s CURA , NRRC and REcharge Labs for our workshops.

All Youth Must Register on Eventbrite. If you are interested in applying for a full scholarship, please email kristel@mnrenewablenow.org before you register on Eventbrite.
