Fill out this form to secure a spot in the 2015 Rhode Island Youth Summit on the Environment (RYSE). The summit will take place on Saturday, October 3 and will consist of a number of smaller workshops and plenary sessions throughout the day.
The purpose of this summit is to create a space in which students can question traditional forms of environmentalism as well as its role in society. We hope to ask challenging questions and engage participants in meaningful conversations. Our goal is to provide an inclusive space for students from all backgrounds in Rhode Island to explore and develop their understanding of environmentalism. Students will leave our conference with newly informed perspectives, new skills, and new networks. Finally, we hope to empower youth to take collective action.
