NYC Youth Summit: Sign up!!
On June 19 and 20, Outdoor Nation and Mobilize.org will convene 500 young people from all over the country in New York’s Central Park for the Outdoor Nation Youth Summit. There, participants between the ages of 18 and 26 will champion the outdoors as athletes, artists, advocates and ambassadors. They will set the agenda, lead the conversation, and develop action plans to encourage their peers to become stewards of the environment and to promote healthy lifestyles by engaging in outdoor activities.
Held in the world’s media capital and country’s most popular urban park, the Outdoor Nation Youth Summit will harness the passion, energy and ideas of a new generation eager to influence the future and to stand up for change. Summit delegates will not only craft and deliver a message of change to the country, but will strengthen the outdoor youth movement by infusing new ideas, skills and connections in a solution-driven environment.Our goal is to motivate and mobilize hundreds of thousands of young people nationwide to reclaim the outdoors for themselves and for future generations and we need your help to spread the word.
