Event description

Description

Please join us, along with Chatham University's Eden Hall Campus, as we think through ways to combat climate change. The day will consist of a panel of speakers who will discuss climate change and the environmental impacts, and will cover topics such as renewable energy and other sustainable solutions. Students will discover ways in which they can become involved in combating climate change. They will also participate in a World Climate Simulation produced by Climate Interactive and MIT Sloan School of Management, a role playing exercise of the UN climate negotiations.

This event is offered at NO CHARGE to high school students and teacher chaperones and continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. Please inquire if you are in need of subsidy to cover bus transportation.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This event is NOT located at the Chatham University campus in Shadyside. The Sustainability Summit for Youth will be located at Chatham's Eden Hall Campus at 6035 Ridge Rd, Gibsonia, PA 15044.
