The Youth Environmental and Sustainability Summit (YESS) will bring together groups of middle school and high school-aged youth from across Pierce County. As a youth-led initiative, YESS is a space where the diverse youth network of Pierce County can learn, share and lead.
Students will facilitate the workshops and presentations. Each group will formulate a plan of action at the summit to address environmental and sustainability issues in their own school and community.
YESS is sponsored by Pierce County Planning & Public Works and coincides with the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.
