Youth are often at the forefront of movements that protect people and the planet, working both on the ground and behind the scenes. The presence of youth leaders reminds our communities and gives meaning to accountability, solidarity, equity, and justice. How do environmental movements engage youth? What unique challenges and strengths do youth activists have? What does youth-led activism look like? What role should youth voices play in movements?
Join Zain Khemani, Lauryn Smith, and Nazshonnii Brown-Almaweri in this community conversation on youth-led movements if you are curious about how youth are paving the way or looking for inspiration. We’ll discuss these questions and take a look at youth-centered activism and movements that are practicing the philosophy of protecting our communities for many generations to come.
Bioneers brings together a diverse, discerning, engaged and reflective community, and the curated conversations we host around crucial topics are highly popular and stimulating.
Each session begins with a brief presentation by a noted thought leader as a conversation starter to frame the topic. Structured group discussion follows, supported by world-class facilitators. The conversation and event wraps with a poetic synthesis of the conversation performed by a talented spoken word artist.
Join us to connect, inspire and be inspired by the collaborative community of Bioneers.
