Urban Climate Action Network: Youth Climate Change Leadership Opportunity!

Is your city experiencing the effects of extreme weather? Flooding? Poor air quality? A lack of green spaces? Though these issues are diverse, climate change science can help us understand and address them all.

The Urban Climate Action Network (UCAN) is a new, national climate change youth corps that empowers teens concerned about climate change within their communities to take action, connect with peers in other cities to discuss environmental, social, and economic challenges and, ultimately, to create better places to live, work and play.

WHO: Teams made up of five high-school-aged youth in grades 9 through 12 from within the continental U.S. Each team must be sponsored by a qualified community organization and will work under the supervision of a dedicated adult leader affiliated with that organization.

WHEN: Selected teams will have three years to create and execute climate action plans. The 2019 UCAN Conference will take place Monday through Friday, July 15-19, 2019.
Applications are due by Friday, January 11, 2019.

WHERE: National Aquarium, 501 East Pratt Street, Baltimore, Maryland 21202

COST: Selected teams will receive complimentary airfare or ground transportation, lodging, food
and conference activities from the National Aquarium.
