Youth Climate Summit

The Nebraska Youth Climate Summit provides opportunities for education on issues such as the impact of climate change on Nebraska, agricultural methods to respond to climate change from local experts and environmental justice impacts of climate change.

Previous speakers have included State Senators Patty Pansing Brooks and Megan Hunt, Director of the State Climate Office Martha Shulski and leaders on regenerative agriculture and environmental justice.

The Summit provides unique opportunities for young people to have conversations with elected officials and learn about methods of civic engagement from a variety of perspectives, including conservative policy ideas, engaging with one’s community, making intergenerational connections and advocating for Clean Energy for All.

The 2022 Nebraska Youth Climate Summit was an inspirational success!
