What is the Livermore Youth Climate Summit?

The Livermore Youth Climate Summit is a one-day interactive event for high school youth to gather and take action on climate change! 

Quest Science Center and Tri-Valley Air Quality Climate Alliance are teaming up with the City of Livermore, Livermore Area Recreation and Parks District, and Livermore Valley Unified School District to bring you an unforgettable gathering dedicated to supporting youth-driven climate awareness and action.

This is a hands-on, high-energy Summit by and for young people from all backgrounds to:

  • Learn about local issues & solutions
  • Hear from Bay Area experts & youth leaders
  • Connect with like-minded youth
  • Create solutions-focused action plans
  • Mobilize with guidance & resources

Participation is free and includes food. You will also have a chance to learn about the City of Livermore’s new Climate Action Plan.

Who should attend?

Interested local high school youth who want to connect with others and learn what they can do to address climate change.  Our goal is to bring together 150-200 youth who want to make a difference.

This Youth Climate Summit is based on a model started by The Wild Center.
