Environmental Town Hall: Young environmental leaders

Hear Jessica Rimington,  a young social entrepreneur, spoken word artist and activist and founder and executive director of One World Youth Project, an innovative education start-up connecting schools worldwide to transform students into empowered global citizens. Then hear from these local young leaders:

  • Katie Spotz of Mentor who became the youngest person to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean
  • Case Western Reserve University student Alayna Dorobeck, GLISTEN, the Great Lakes Innovative Stewardship through Education Network, a student driven environmental leadership program of the National Center for Science and Civic Engagement,
  • Shaker Heights High School student Ce Ce Mercer of the Shaker Heights High School Environmental Club,
  • West Geauga High School student Clay McMullen and Hawken School student Isabella Todaro with the Environmental Discovery Project, a holistic endeavor to infuse sustainable practices into our community.
We will start with the DVD of Jessica Rimington's superb call to action from the National Bioneers Conference, followed by a celebration of local youth leaders, and culminating in an action agenda developed by these same students.
