About The Summit

The Cape and Islands Youth Climate Action Summit is a day long event for youth and accompanying teachers from across Cape Cod to learn more about the climate crisis, from a number of individual perspectives!

Join us as we discuss Climate Change, how it relates to Cape Cod, and what we can do about it. (There will be food!)
