This year's theme is
Living Blue: Clean Water and You
Earth Summit is an event that brings together local professionals and high school and college students to learn more about careers in environmental sustainability.
Our Earth Summit meetings occur annually in the fall and include interactive workshops that provide students with a real-world connection to the community they live in. Attendees align passion and sustainable best practices with a successful career.
Our objective is to empower students. We aim to equip them with new skills, broaden their horizons about exciting career possibilities, and inspire them to take active roles in their communities. Ultimately, we hope to motivate them to volunteer and engage in activities that promote sustainability and create positive impacts for the world.
