This year’s Earth Day Festival presented by the Aquarium of the Pacific is about young people interested in the study and stewardship of our oceans, which make up more than 70% of our planet’s surface. The Aquarium’s Teen Climate Council is taking over the event and presenting the Teen Climate Fest: Earth Day Edition.
Happening from 9 AM until 5 PM on Saturday, April 22, the event aims to engage attendees in sustainability and climate action through sustainable fashion. The event will feature an upcycled fashion show, fashion company and teen researcher booths, and a panel discussing environmentally friendly fashion.
“The Aquarium’s Teen Climate Council is composed of high school students who have a passion for protecting the environment and are committed to creating a more sustainable future,” said Callum Watson, Youth Volunteer Coordinator at the Aquarium. “Through this program, these teens can learn about the impacts of climate change, develop leadership and communication skills, and take action to promote conservation and sustainability in their communities.”
Watson noted that the council engages in a variety of activities such as organizing events, leading workshops for the community, and publishing books about conservation. “The Teen Climate Council is an inspiring example of how young people can make a significant impact in the fight against climate change,” he said.
The Aquarium encourages high school students with a passion for protecting the environment to consider joining the Teen Climate Council. “By joining this Council, teens will join a community of like-minded individuals who are committed to creating a more sustainable future for our planet,” said Watson.
