CAPTAIN PLANET FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES GLOBAL BLUE CLIMATE ACTION SUMMIT SERIES FOR YOUNG CHANGEMAKERS
ATLANTA, July 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Captain Planet Foundation (CPF), through its Planeteer Alliance Program, is hosting the Blue Climate Action Summit Series July 29-31. This training event will gather young climate heroes to restore and protect oceans, lakes and rivers across the globe and expands on work CPF has done for the last six years in training 3,000+ young changemakers from 90+ countries. The BCAS Series includes nine youth-led, in-person summits and a global virtual summit hosted from Atlanta; Youth ages 10-25 are invited to join for free.
The in-person, youth-led summits will be hosted in Lake Tahoe, California; Discovery Bay, Jamaica; Nairobi, Kenya; Kisumu, Kenya; NSW, Australia; Lagos, Nigeria; Lima, Peru; Merida, Mexico; and New Delhi, India. The global virtual summit will be available twice across the weekend to accommodate global time zones.
The Blue Climate Action Summit Series is a collaborative effort of CPF’s Planeteer Alliance and the organizers of the Kenya-based Nam Lolwe Youth Summit (NALYS), founded in 2021 by three Planeteers, with the goal of reconnecting youth to their natural spaces and empowering them to take action to preserve ‘blue’ resources.
“It’s incredibly mind-blowing to see the NALYS model replicated across the globe with the help of the Planeteer Alliance,” said Michelle Muchilwa, 17, co-founder of NALYS. “We’re happy to create a summit model that emphasizes a connection to place and empowers young people to create change within their communities no matter where they live.”
