Youth Environmental Summit 2016

The Youth Environmental Summit (YES) 2016 is the first summit organized by the Parenting Group Shanghai, with support from Green Initiatives and the Indian Association (IA) Shanghai. The summit aims to sensitize young children on environmental issues and empower them to be responsible future leaders.

Active participants are children in the age group 11-15 years. They will bring their individual perspectives on environmental challenges and solutions through short, informative presentations developed under the guidance of their parents. This will facilitate increased bonding through working for a common, meaningful cause.

Presentations would be judged by a distinguished group of jury chosen from Shanghai’s environmental community, including educational institutions and the corporate. Keynote presentations by influential thought leaders and passive participation of smaller age groups through creative activities, video screenings, quizzes and workshops will be other highlights of the summit.

The entire activity has been designed to be interactive, engaging, educational and impactful.

Let us start nurturing responsible future leaders!
