How to organize a student-led sustainability conference

by PRP Group, on 07/10/2024

District Administration PRPIn April, Ulster BOCES hosted a climate conference where we invited students to join in and contribute to a conversation about the United Nations’ 17 goals of sustainability. Those goals include topics such as economics and gender equality, in addition to the more ecologically focused themes generally associated with sustainability.

The idea was to create a multi-generational conversation about sustainability driven by young people. It was important to us that they lead these discussions because, frankly, they already are a primary driver of these conversations out in the world. Censoring of young people by adults is prevalent enough, and we don’t believe that’s the best path forward for future generations.
