The youth-led in-person summits will take place in Lake Tahoe, California; discovery bay, Jamaica; Nairobi, Kenya; Kisumu, Kenya; NSW, Australia; Lagos, Nigeria; Lima, Peru; Merida, Mexico; and New Delhi, India. The Global Virtual Summit will be available twice over the weekend to accommodate global time zones.
The Blue Climate Action Summit series is a collaborative effort between CPF’s Planeteer Alliance and the organizers of the KenyaNam Lolwe Youth Summit (NALYS), founded in 2021 by three Planeteers, with the aim of reconnecting young people to their natural spaces and empowering them to act to preserve “blue” resources.
“It is incredibly breathtaking to see the NALYS model replicated around the world with the help of Planeteer Alliance,” said Michelle Muchilwa, 17, co-founder of NALYS. “We are excited to create a summit model that emphasizes a connection to place and empowers young people to create change within their communities, no matter where they live.”
