SUNY Cortland’s Master Teacher Program and the Homer High School Environmental Club are hosting a one-day conference to inspire students to create positive change in their schools and communities aimed at slowing climate change.
The Second Annual Central NY Youth Climate Summit will be held this Saturday, Oct. 20 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Homer High School.
Students and teachers will engage in workshops on topics like the plight of the monarch butterflies, weather and climate change in Central New York, sustainability of the Onondaga Lake watershed, organic farming, green architecture and design and many more.
Following the workshops, student teams will create a “climate action plan” to bring back to their school communities.
More than 20 school teams from districts throughout Central New York are expected to participate.
