Youth for the Environment and Sustainability (YES) Conference
The Spare the Air Youth program is happy to announce the Youth for the Environment and Sustainability (YES) Summit on climate change and transportation on Saturday, November 2, 2013 from 10am – 4pm!
This event is co-sponsored by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission and will be hosted by MTC in Oakland.
The YES Summit strives to bring Bay Area students together to discuss transportation issues in their communities and schools. They can discuss transportation changes in their neighborhoods, share stories from events they have hosted at their schools, hear about local climate change/transportation programs and projects and even learn how to fix a flat tire on their bikes! In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to see interactive presentations and displays, and also showcase their work to improve transportation within their communities.
We encourage you to spread the word to other Bay Area youth organizations, Green Team members, students, bicycle coalitions, peers and any other transportation awareness groups! Any and all students and community members are encouraged to attend. Scavenger hunts, raffles, prizes and food will be included.Date: Saturday, November 2, 2013
Time: 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
