MORE ABOUT THE SUMMIT

The Climate Leadership Summit is a solution focused event designed by high school students for students in collaboration with CSU to provide and inspire other students who are interested in STEM, entrepreneurship, leadership, climate change, and environmental sustainability. The Climate Leadership Summit connects high school and college students from the Northern Colorado region with leaders in all facets of climate science. It brings students together with people, ideas and information that point to making a healthy, and more inspiring future.

 

Our aim is to translate environmental knowledge and concern into action that supports a new economy through all of our careers and activities in the future. The potential students hold for making changes in their own communities and the world is incredible. Our goal is to deliver a message of inspiration and hope.
