Now more than ever, teens have become increasingly aware of the threat posed to the future of our planet and all life on Earth. Today’s young adults must face the reality of rising sea levels, species extinction, wildfires, floods, and global instability, which for many can lead to feelings of climate anxiety and overwhelm. In order to create lasting and sustainable change as youth environmental activists, it is essential to find tools that can support our well-being throughout these demanding times.

This series, developed by rising high school junior Ella Suring, is designed to give teens these tools through presentations by leaders in the environmental and wellness worlds so that we are rooted in a connection to nature, and an awareness of what we are trying to protect. Throughout the series, we aim to build a community that supports the work of teen activists now and going forward.
