Earth Summit

 

About: Earth Summit, sponsored by Clean Valley Council (CVC), is a day-long event designed to give high school students from around the Roanoke Valley the chance to explore and understand current environmental topics. Students will meet with local environmental professionals, participate in break-out sessions, and connect with like-minded peers. Earth Summit began as the vision of Roanoke City student, Lexie Levin, to bring together students to discuss environmental concerns and work towards solutions. This year will be the 10th Earth Summit, a testament to how the dream of one young person can make a difference. Registration is open to 10th-12th grade public & private school students in Botetourt County, City of Roanoke, City of Salem, County of Roanoke and the Town of Vinton.
