A community of educators empowering students to take climate action

I am powerful

Through the Summit we've explored how we are all powerful in different ways. What's really important is believing in our individual power and in this session you'll hear from some inspiring young people about how they've used their power to create change. The session will include an opportunity for you to write or create a message to yourself about the ways in which you would like to transform our world.
