The student round table coincided with the Champions of Change event that is celebrating eight Americans who are doing extraordinary work to enhance climate education and literacy in classrooms and communities across the country.
The eight students invited to attend are student leaders, environmental stewards, and change agents in their respective schools. This group of students represent middle school, high school and undergraduate college students. These award-winning students are leading the charge for youth-driven change bringing the youth voice to the issues of climate change, climate education and awareness, environmental protection, transition to renewable energy, and reduction of carbon pollution.
