I just wanted to give everyone an update on an event that the green team planned and hosted in Early March. On March 12, 2016 dozens of youth and young adults gathered at Cylburn Arboretum for The First Annual Youth Leadership Summit hosted by The Baltimore Office of Sustainability. The primary focus of the summit was sustainability. The day began with simply asking the question “What is sustainability?” Following the question there were two presenters; Dr. Rita Turner a lecturer that we had the privilege of meeting in Ocean City at the MAEOE Conference and Akiima Price a presenter based out of DC. Both presenters shared valuable information with the audience and were interactive. Following the presentations the group enjoyed a tasty lunch. Soon after an exhibit hall began with various groups including The Baltimore Energy Challenge, and Urban Creators (a non-profit farm based in Philadelphia). Students had the opportunity to talk with everyone before the closing activity, which involved skits and poems about how students would use what the learned to make Baltimore residents healthier and more aware. So if you missed this year’s summit we would LOVE to have you join us next year!
