The 2nd Annual Flagstaff Youth Climate Summit, held on April 16th at The Arboretum at Flagstaff, celebrated youth action and ingenuity for sustainability. Fifty-four students from 10 schools and organizations throughout Flagstaff and northern Arizona presented their projects on climate change and renewable energy, participated in an activity-packed sustainability expo, learned about climate research locally and in Alaska, and competed for prizes. We look forward to an even more successful Summit next year!
